Piper

Sweet Sudan

Piper Sudan grass is an improved variety of Sudan grass; it has finer stems and leaves than Sorghum Sudan hybrid. A vigorous summer crop that out competes a weed.

An excellent catch crop for excess nitrogen, Sudan grass reduces nematode and symphylan population as it decomposes. It grows quickly and needs to be mowed or grazed regularly to control height (up to 2m). Great for livestock forage but should be grazed only when above knee height. Leave 15 to 20 cm stubble for maxi- mum production.
