Sorghum Sudangrass Planting Recommendations
Sorghum sundangress is a warm season crop, and generally should not be planted when soil temperatures are less than 62 degrees.
Plant 1"-2"deep in moist soil, with good seed-soil contact.
If planted for hay harvest, cut at 28" or less to allow for better drying.
To avoid prussic acid poisoning with any BMR variety, allow young plants to grow taller than 24" before pasturing; avoid pasturing for 10 days after frost.
