We have been involved in the Sorghum Industry and Breeding Sorghum Grain, Forage, and Sudangrass hybrids in the Texas Panhandle and around the world for over 35 years. During this time we have spent countless hours working with and getting input from Nutritionists, Feedlot owners, and Dairies discussing the issues they face and how to get more sorghum silage incorporated into their feeding rations. We then designed a breeding program targeted at addressing the issues. At MOJO Seed our goal is to work hand in hand with our customers and supply them with not only the most advanced genetics, but with the customer support they need to achieve their goals.
OPAL was developed to address these issues and is fast becoming a leader in the industry for producers looking for the highest quality silage possible, and continuing with the same standards the newest addition for 2021 is PEARL. PEARL compliments the program with earlier maturity, stronger White Sugarcane Aphid tolerance, and stronger seedling vigor. Overall silage quality, starch, and energy are at levels normally not reached in a sorghum silages for both these products, the utilization of the starch and energy are at an optimal levels because of the larger seed which helps in kernel processing, and the genetic background to help the kernels of grain break down in the silage pile. With large grain containing increased protein levels OPAL and PEARL silage are truly a step above the competition.
