'NP22' Sudangrass [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench] [formerly S. sudanense (Piper) Staph] (Reg. No. GPI38), a random-mating population carrying the mS3 gene and selected primarily for low dhurrin content, is generally similar in appearance to 'Piper' sudangrass with mostly dry stalks (white midrib) and purple plant color. Seed color is heterogeneous and includes straw, sienna, mahogany, and black glumes. NP22 was developed cooperatively by USDA-ARS and the Nebraska Agricultural Experiment Station and released in May 1982.
