#1541 | SORGHUM BICOLOR DRUMMONDII

Summary

Piper sudangrass is widely used for pasture, greenchop, hay, and cover crop. Piper is noted for its lower prussic acid content. This doesn’t rule out the possibility of a prussic acid problem with a grazed field, but under similar growing conditions, Piper Sudangrass will tend to have fewer problems with prussic acid than  ther Sudan varieties.
