Quality and fodder yield of forage black sorghum (Sorghum almum) for silage in mature ages



Quality and fodder yield of forage black sorghum (Sorghum almum) for silage in mature ages



Agronomia Mesoamericana 16(1): 29-36



The study was carried out to determine the chemical composition and production yield of dry matter and nutritional content per area in shoots 91 to 161 days old, and to explore the options for harvest silage. The study took place at the Alfredo Volio Mata Experimental Station of the University of Costa Rica. The first samples were taken at 91 days and were re-taken every 14 days until they were 161 days old.
