The EMPYR line is built on a wide variety of hybrid types that provide solutions for specific grazing or silage needs, such as:
- Aphix™ SCA Tolerance, the best-in-class option for combating pressure from sugarcane aphids
- BMR-6 for increased palatability and digestibility, supporting more weight gain and milk production
- Brachytic Dwarf for superior standability and high leaf-to-stalk ratios
- Photoperiod Sensitivity (PS), for a wide harvest window
- Dry Stalk for reduced moisture levels, for earlier baling and storage
