Medium-Early Maturity Hybrid Grain Sorghum

K35-Y5 is a very short medium-early cream colored grain sorghum that is slightly later in maturity than KS310. As you move up in elevation, days to half-bloom are stable. K35-Y5 has better than average emergence in cool soils for a cream colored grain sorghum. After black layer (P.M.) K35-Y5 has quicker dry down to harvest moisture than most early hybrids. Monitor seeding rate closely. K35-Y5 tillers easily, keep seeding rate low in dry conditions. K35-Y5 has extremely good drought tolerance and does not delay heading under these conditions.
