The Brazos PeakBlend is a combination of sorghum-sudangrass, sunn hemp and buckwheat. This mixture of a grass, legume and broadleaf is meant to be utilized after wheat or corn silage for maximum nitrogen and soil building. Sorghum-sudangrass and sunn hemp will frost kill. Buckwheat should winterkill. As such, there is little termination management with this blend. Season: Warm Season
