SS506 is a late maturing, tall silage hybrid with high tonnage yield performance. Due to a high sugar content, stalks are very sweet and juicy. It is adapted for all but the shorter, cooler growing seasons in the Great Plains and at higher elevations. In its northern area of use, it may not produce a head. Plant height reaches 10 to over 12 feet with very good standability. SS506 has limited use for greenchop. In some areas it is grown for bio-mass ethanol production.
