Seed Description

Hybrid Sudangrass


Hybrid sudangrass is a fast-growing annual grass used for forage production. It is finer quality than the sorghum-sudans, but significantly coarser than Japanese millet. It is easier to make for hay than the sorghum-sudans because of its finer stems. Grows 4-7′ tall. Yields have ranged from 3-5 tons/acre dry matter. When harvested early (30″), contains high leaves of energy and protein. The quality and energy is significantly reduced after heading.

  • Profuse tillering with rapid recovery after harvest
  • Very high digestibility; big beef gains and more milk per acre
