Piper Sudangrass is warm season annual that requires a frost free growing season. It can be used for multi-cut green chop or hay, summer pasture, or as competative cover crop (to provide large amounts of organic matter, cycle nutriets, suppress weeds, and loosen soil -with its deep penetrating root system). Piper sudan has finer stems than Sorghum-Sudan hybrid.
Sudangrass should not be grazed before 18 inches high, during or immediately after any severe stress, or before regrowth is 12 to 18 inches high after cutting. Mares with foal should not graze sudangrass, nor be fed greenchop or hay made from sudangrass.
