Dry weight and HCN concentration were determined in several parts of a sorghum-sudangrass hybrid. Leaf blade minus midrib was high in HCN at all growth stages but contributed decreasing amounts of total plant dry weight. Midrib, sheath, and stem portions decreased in HCN concentration with maturity. Decrease in HCN potential of the entire plant was due mostly to the proportional increase in weight of low-HCN-containing parts.
