Sorghum Sudangrass

Sorghum sudangrass is a hybrid between sudangrass and forage sorghums (used mainly for once-cut silage). As a cover crop sorghum sudangrass is a rapid growing summer annual grass with a tremendous root system and large amounts of biomass for building soil and suppressing weeds. Best used for haylage, green-chop and short term pasture/grazing, sorghum sudangrass is not as suitable for dry hay due to larger stems than sudangrass.

Prussic acid levels increase in both sudangrass and sorghum sudangrass after a killing frost. It is recommended not to graze or cut for 10-28 days after a frost. For more information please consult with your area Bio Till Cover Crop Expert.
