Cracka Grain Sorghum

Nuseed Cracka – the sorghum hybrid that has a crack in tough conditions

Cracka shows superior standability over a range of different growing conditions and soil types, doing best in a yield environment of 3-6 t/ha. Less lodging means an easier harvest and less grain loss.

With low stay-green characteristics, Cracka dries off well before harvest, with far less chance of gumming up harvesters. A medium to high tillering variety, Cracka achieves its yield potential without the need to plant more seed, saving input costs at the front end to deliver a better yield at the back end.

Cracka has shown consistent test weights in tough conditions, consistently going above the threshold for Sorghum 1 classification.
