Sudan grass is a warm-season annual grass that is commonly grown for forage and hay production. Here are some growing tips to help you get the most out of your Sudan grass:

  1. Soil preparation: Sudan grass grows best in well-drained soils with a pH range of 6.0-7.5. The soil should be plowed, disked or tilled, and prepared well before planting.

  2. Planting: Sudan grass should be planted in the late spring or early summer when soil temperatures reach 60°F (15.5°C) or higher. The seed can be drilled or broadcasted at a rate of 25-30 lbs per acre. It is recommended to plant Sudan grass at a depth of 1-2 inches.

  3. Fertilization: Sudan grass requires adequate nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium for optimal growth. A soil test can help determine the specific fertilizer needs of your crop. In general, 50-60 lbs of nitrogen, 40-50 lbs of phosphorus, and 50-60 lbs of potassium per acre are recommended.

  4. Irrigation: Sudan grass requires regular and adequate water for good growth and high yield. Irrigate the crop regularly during the growing season, especially during dry periods.

  5. Weed control: Sudan grass is susceptible to weed competition, so timely and effective weed control measures should be taken. Pre-emergence herbicides can be used to control weeds before they emerge, while post-emergence herbicides can be used to control weeds that have already emerged.

  6. Harvesting: Sudan grass should be harvested at the boot stage or early bloom stage to ensure high quality forage. Delaying the harvest can result in lower quality forage and reduced yields.

  7. Storage: Sudan grass should be stored in a dry, well-ventilated area to prevent spoilage. It is important to monitor the moisture content of the forage and to avoid over-drying, as this can result in reduced nutrient content.
