Piper Sudan Grass

Crop TypeSudan Grass
Seeds / Lb22,000
Minimum Germination Temperature65F

This warm season grass is a great option when residue building, grazing and increasing organic matter are desired. This plant features a smaller stem but more leaf structure than a sorghum or sorghum-sudan, which makes it extremely palatable with terrific forage quality. Sudan grasses and sorghum-sudan grasses have been reported as not competing well with very diverse mixes, so it’s better to keep the number of species simple. The risk for prussic acid in sudan grass is the lowest among the warm season grasses.
