Trudan 8 is an exceptional hybrid sudangrass for most summer forage needs. It is best positioned and used for hay, haylage and grazing. Other limited uses include greenchop and as cover. Trudan 8 is very leafy and fine stemmed. Regrowth is fast after cutting or grazing. It adapts well to and can tolerate high cutting frequencies and intensive grazing practices with proper management. Exceptional forage quality can be produced that is high in protein and TDN (total digestible nutrients). Prussic acid potential is low. Potato & vegetable growers – Trudan 8 suppresses nematode populations when incorporated as green manure in the fall after it has been stressed (e.g., after first frost or ceasing irrigation).
