    Sorghum Sudan is a versatile summer annual cover crop that doubles as a high quality forage. It is fast growing for emergency forage needs and regrows- allowing for multiple cuts. In fact, cutting sorghum sudan triggers the root system to flourish. Even if used as forage the root system creates a significant biomass that helps renew wore out soils and build organic matter. **Note- grazing right after a frost or flooding can cause prussic acid poisoning.
