Cooperative Extension Service • Kansas State University • Manhattan Nitrate toxicity Nitrate is a natural product formed from the oxidation of organic compounds. Most of the soil nitrogen absorbed by plant roots is in nitrate form. Normally, nitrate in a plant is rapidly converted to amino acids by the enzyme nitrate reductase. This reduction requires energy from sunlight, adequate water, nutrients, and favorable temperature. When plants are stressed, the nitrate-to-protein conversion is…

MANAGEMENT OF NITRATE AND PRUSSIC ACID IN FORAGE CROPS

The two factors of drought conditions and export markets are focusing recent attention on nitrates and prussic acid in forages. During normal years, nitrate-nitrogen (NO3-N) taken up by crops is

A review of factors affecting and prevention of pasture-induced nitrate toxicity in grazing animals

Although plant roots take up nitrogen (N) both as ammonium (NH 4 ) and nitrate (NO 3 ) ions, under most soil conditions uptake of NO 3 dominates. Once absorbed by the plant roots, the NO 3 is reduced

Methods of Analysis for Nitrate in Forages

Recently, much of the U.S. has been under drought conditions. Lack of water has limited the availability and quality of normal forages. In addition, livestock producers have often been forced to

Hydrocyanic Acid Content Variation amongst Sorghum Cultivars Grown with Varying Seed Rates and Nitrogen Levels

TLDR
It is concluded that approved cultivar JS-2002 produced less HCN sown with higher seed rate and applied low doses of N fertilizer under dryland farming conditions of Pothwar is recommended for general cultivation.

EFFECT OF CUTTING AND POST-CUTTING INTERVALS ON HYDROGEN CYANIDE IN SORGHUM FORAGE GROWN UNDER RAIN-FED CONDITIONS

TLDR
Forage sorghum cultivar JS-2002 with lowest HCN content grown under rainfed conditions and is safer for livestock feeding at pre-booting stage is identified and livestock rearing farmers of rain-fed region are advised to grow JS- 2002 for safer grazing.

Evaluation of forage yield and quality of sorghum, sudangrass and pearl millet cultivars in Manawatu

TLDR
A trial was carried out to compare forage yields, forage quality, crop morphology and seed quality of four sorghum x sudangrass hybrids, finding that new cultivars displayed the potential to increase forage yield.

Row Configuration and Nitrogen Application for Barley–Pea Intercropping in Montana

Intercropping barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) with Austrian winter pea (Pisum sativum ssp. arvense L. Poir) may increase the use efficiencies of growth resources and reduce fertilizer N requirements. The

CYANIDE POISONING IN ANIMALS

Cyanide exists in nature as well as it is also released in environment due to anthropogenic activities. Being a potent inorganic poison, it has significance in veterinary clinical and animal

Agronomic indices and nutritional values of plant parts of three varieties of sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench) fodder at late stages of growth

TLDR
All the varieties of Sorghum exhibited a good agronomic indices and nutritional value that characterized sorghum as a fodder in humid tropic and farmers should be encouraged to use leaf fractions of sorghums than stem.

Sorghum poisoning in buffaloes and its treatment

TLDR
Post-mortem examination revealed that carcasses of buffaloes exposed to sorghum poisoning from Nirdhari village of the Mandsaur district of the Madhya Pradesh in the month of May 2018 were bright cherryred coloured blood, congestion of liver, lungs, kidney and congestion and petechial haemorrhages on the surface of the gastrointestinal tract.
