Suggestions for Raising Sudangrass:
Plant 1/2 to 1 inch deep for the best stand. Seeding rates for grazing 25-30 pounds per acre. Soil temperature should be in the 60-65 degree range at planting time. No-till planting works following grain; or into pastures or into alfalfa stands where it works for your forage use.
Start grazing at 25-30 inches. Leave 6-8 inch stubble (for best regrowth and yield) then rotate paddocks. Harvesting for hay at 40-49 inches gives the best yield, total digestible nutrients (TDN) and highest protein levels. Crimping with your swather will help cure sudangrass for better and quicker hay harvesting. Sudangrass for silage should be cut before full flowering and allowed to cure over night before chopping for silage pit (high water content can lower silage quality). Leave 6-8 inch stubble for best regrowth and yield.Pro-Max™ cannot be used for horses.
