  • Summer Annual Grasses

    Summer annual grasses such as sudangrass, sorghum x sudangrass hybrids, pearl millet, and teff can all play a role for pasture and hay needs. If managed properly, these grasses can provide high yields of good quality forage in a short amount of time.

    Sudangrass (Sorghum bicolor ssp. drummondi) is a rapidly growing annual grass in the sorghum family. It is medium yielding and well suited for grazing or hay because of its smaller stem size. Sudangrass regrows quickly after harvest and can be grazed several times during summer and early fall.
