Synopsis

Synopsis

After-frost sampling of the aftermaths of forage sorghum and sudangrass from 3 summer cuts, 1 summer cut, and no summer cuts showed no significant change in dry matter yield or percent crude protein. A significant linear increase in percent crude fiber within managements was noted; concentrations of prussic acid decreased sharply. When stockpiled, mature forage sorghum resulted in lower percent crude fiber than immature stages and appreciably lower than comparable growth stages of sudangrass.
