(Prepared by tho United' Staten Department

From un eight-ounce package of
seed, introduced from Africa In 1009
through the efforts of C. V. Piper of
the Unjted States Department of Ag
riculture, tho growing of sudan grass
has rapidly increased until In 1018 the
value of the crop lu tho United States
was estimated, to he $10,000,000, and
its popularity ls said to be greater*
hero than in its native country. It ls,
particularly well adapted to semi
tropical regions and the warmer parts
of the temperate zones, but lt has
been grown with some success as for
north as southern Alberta- Since its
Introduction by the department In this
country it hos boon tried with good
results In Australia, South America,

and somo related grasses. Sudan, how
ever, is far the most Important, and
the others aro treated only brlelly. j

Sudan grass ls admirably adaptod
for use ns nn emergency bay crop, and
is rapidly supplanting millet In manyi
states. It ls being used successfully j
by thousands of fanners as a summer
pasture. For this purpose there aro
few crops that give better returns and
serve so well to supplement tho per
manent pastures and the feed lot.
The bulletin outlines the results of
numerous feeding experiments with
Sudan grass. In these experiments
it was demonstrated that sudan grass
hay compares very favorably with
other well-known hays in feeding
value, especially as a roughage for
Work horses and stock cattle.
At present, seed production ls un
profitable on account of low yields and
uncertain prices. Yields of seed aro
highest in western Texas and In the
irrigated regions of New Mexico, Ari
zona and California. In growing the
seed n great deal of care ls necessary
to prevent the hybridisation with the
Sorghums. When Intended for seed It
should be nt least 80 rods from any
