  • Forage Sorghum (Sudangrass) Image
  • Characteristics Chart:
  • Sorghum
  • Forage sorghums are often combined with corn for silage production on lighter soils. The seed is usually mixed with seed corn at the planter box at a rate of 2.5 lbs per acre. The tall plant height (7-9+ feet) has high forage yield potential, especially in drought conditions.

    • Produces best in hot summer conditions, need hot summer temperatures to reach optimum yields.
    • Best suited for well drained, fertile soils
    • One cut system

    PRECAUTIONS need to be taken against prussic acid poisoning when harvested too early after a frost. If harvested after frost and put in silo, bag or bunker, allow two weeks before feeding to lower prussic acid levels in feed.

    Establishment:
    Sterile (no seed head) plant with very good seedling vigor, high stalk sugars, tremendous tillering capacity; only a one cut system.

    Seeding Rate:
    Alone: 20.25 lbs./acre
    With corn: 2.5 lbs./acre

    Seeding Depth:
    1″-1.5″ deep in well prepared, firm seedbed

    Soil Types:
    Well drained, fertile soils; pH 5.8-7.5.
