Sudan grass

Sudan grass (Sorghum vulgare, variety Sudanese), hay plant in the grass family. Native to Sudan, in northeastern Africa, this grass was brought to the United States in 1909 to be planted in dry areas because it needs very little water to grow. Farmers grow it to feed their livestock. Sudan grass, first grown in the South and Southwest, now is found throughout the United States.
