Sorghum x Sudangrass presents the opportunity for prussic acid toxicity, especially after fall frosts. Nitrogen applications are highly recommended if the goal is to maximize forage production; however, those same fertility supplements can pose an increased threat of elevated nitrates in sorghum x sudangrass after plants are stressed.


A frost will terminate sorghum x sudangrass, millet, sunflowers, cowpeas, and sunn hemp. Brassica species will terminate with multiple nights in the teens. If any brassicas overwinter, glyphosate and 2,4-D provide adequate control.

  • Has a base of 50% warm-season annuals for optimized biomass & is uniquely suited for grazing. 
  • Will tolerate a wide range of conditions - poor soil, low pH, & drought environments. 
  • Species diversity helps improve soil aggregate stability through enhanced microbial activity.
