NK180 is a high tannin brown seeded bird resistant early hybrid. Ideal for planting close to populated areas and in fields close to trees. In Mexico average planting dates are May to June. Responds well to high populations, high fertilization and irrigation. Standability is excellent at high populations used under irrigation. Yield stability at high altitudes (up to 6,000 feet above sea level) is outstanding. Adapted as an early grain sorghum for all sorghum growing areas in Mexico. Excellent for double cropping behind early spring crops.
