- Superior tillering
- Rapid regrowth
Sudangrass is easy to establish but does require 60 degree F soil temperatures (and rising). It can be grazed or cut for baleage or haylage with an optimum harvest height at 40″. Sundangrass can be made for dry hay in the southern zones but it must be cut by 30″ to achieve dry down,. It responds well to applied fertility or manure. Timely cutting (45 days after planting and 30 days for subsequent cuts) is important as quality well decline as it reaches maturity.
Seeding rates are 25-40 lb/A. Seeding depth is 3/4″ to 1″ deep. It is best to get the seed into the moisture. If inter-seeding into existing hay or pasture stand, make sure the grass is cut short to achieve good establishment.
