Sorghum and Sudan grass hybrid (Sorghum saccharatum (L.) Moench * S. sudanense)
Sorghum and Sudan grass hybrid (Sorghum saccharatum (L.) Moench * S. sudanense) has a filamentous root system similar that of all bluegrass plants. The sorghum and Sudan grass hybrids can provide stable and high yields in the dry regions where other forage grasses fail to yield satisfactory harvests due to the water lack and soil salination when the cultivating principles are observed. Use of Sudan grass and sorghum and Sudan grass hybrids allow the farm extend the green conveyer utilization period up to 210 days. The grass ability to regrow quickly after cutting and yield up to 4 green mass cuttings until the late autumn is a valuable biological specificity as maize, the major forage plant, yields but one cutting. 1 hundredweight of green mass contains 0.23 feed units, up to 44.4 % of fiber, 27.3 % of NFES substances, up to 16 – 18 % of protein, and 1 feed unit contains 100 g of digestible protein. Among the annual fodder plants, the sorghum and Sudan grass hybrids growing within the green conveyor is one of the most economically benefitial directions.
