Susu Sorghum

Giant Sorghum provides a good screen around plots of exposed sites. It will still supply good cover even as the season progresses and the Sorghum breaks down. It is a good choice to sow later on in the season due to its rapid growth habit.



‘Susu’ is a variety of Giant Sorghum. Giant Sorghum itself is a Sorghum x Sudan Grass hybrid, which reaches around 2m tall and is therefore a very useful windbreak to protect more vulnerable crops. For example, a 3-6m strip of Giant Sorghum alongside a crop of Maize will provide ideal protection. Giant Sorghum has a deep root system and this enables it to withstand periods of drought. Giant Sorghum can be prone to lodging later in the season.
