Sorghum Halepenses and its Cyanide Content
S. I. AL-Sultan

Thirty six samples of fresh green Sorghum at various stages of growth up to 180 cm length were examined for estimation of its cyanide content. The samples were collected from different farms. Results obtained revealed that the concentration increases gradually starting from the 46 cm length of the plant (about 0.698 mg/100g plant) to reach its maximum at the 80 cm length about 2.54 mg/100g plant). It then decreases gradually till it reaches 0.042 mg/100g plant at the 180 cm length.
