Forage performance of advanced generations of the hybrid Euchlaena perennis Hitchc. X Zea mays L
Revista de la Facultad de Agronomia, Universidad Nacional de la Plata 54(2): 611-625
Genetically variable populations from the 11-13th generations compared in trials at six sites over three years with commercial forage sorghum hybrids had similar green yields and slightly lower dry yields. The Euchlaena X Zea mays hybrid is short, with juicy stems, and has a high leaf/stem ratio. It has a long season of use (spring-autumn) and is tolerant of drought. Its temperature requirements for germination are similar to those of maize.
