- Agronomic: sorghum (milo)
- Animal Production: feed/forage
- Soil Management: soil quality/health
We have a relatively short growing season for annual crops in the Northeast. We have wet springs and falls which make it hard to get corn planted early in the spring, equally difficult to get it harvested in the Fall and almost impossible to get a reasonable cover crop established after harvest. Sorghum/soybean forage mixtures have been introduced as an alternative annual forage crop to corn. We will compare the cost and yield difference of corn for silage and sorghum/soybean mix for silage.
