GRAIN AND FORAGE SORGHUM

Meeting the demand

Sorghum is a high yielding, nutrient-efficient and drought tolerant crop that can be cultivated on over 80% of the world’s agricultural land. Forage & grain sorghum’s unique characteristics allow farmers to meet the growing demands for sustainable food, feed, and biomass production while reducing the cost of inputs such as water. Its geographic distribution spans temperate to tropical climates, and its rich genetic diversity allows for multiple specialized uses.

ALFALFA

Breeding for the future

For more than 35 years, we have bred alfalfa of the highest quality. Through the S&W Seed Company Global Alfalfa Breeding Program, we provide our customers with the latest seed innovations, industry-leading expertise, and advanced agronomic support.

Our specialty is high-yield alfalfa varieties with a wide range of adaptation across many growing environments. Our dormant alfalfa breeding emphasizes high yield and forage quality, developing hardy alfalfa varieties with plenty of resistance to disease and stress. Our non-dormant breeding program is focused on maximizing yield regardless of soil and water salinity.

S&W Seed Company is dedicated to helping our customers in optimizing their alfalfa production systems to obtain maximum yields and financial success. As with any crop production system, appropriate crop input management is important to the grower’s bottom line and we are here to help.
