Dual is a new grain and forage sorghum for South Dakota which grows taller than either Reliance or Norghum. It was developed to provide the stockman with a grain sorghum having a high yield of sweet, juicy forage for both fodder and silage. Tests conducted at several locations on widely different soil types and under varying climatic conditions show Dual is well adapted to the sorghum growing areas of the state. About 8,000 pounds of Dual seed were released by the South Dakota State College Agricultural Experiment Station to the County Crop Improvement Associations in the spring of 1958.
