Bred to maximise top end yields, HGS-102 grain sorghum is a great option for farmers looking for a mid to full season maturity hybrid that has a midge rating of 7. HGS-102 benefits from great head exertion, a deep red colour and is strong enough to handle tough conditions. It is similar in maturity to MR43 and MR-Buster. Independent trial work to date has shown HGS-102 is an outstanding dual-purpose hybrid that is equal to or better than other commercial hybrids.
