Abstract: This study was conducted at Shukaba Livestock Research Station (SLRS) to investigate the effect of intercropping of Sorghum Sudanese (S. Sudanese) and Sorghum bicolor cv Wad Ahmed (S. bicolor cv Wad Ahmed) with Dolicus lablab (D. lablab) on the level of hydrocyanic acid (HCN) in the intercropped plants compared to their corresponding mono cropping plants .The result showed that the level of HCN in S. bicolor cv Wad Ahmed is significantly (p<0.01) higher than in S. Sudanese .However, the same trend was found in the D. lablab intercropped with S. bicolor cv Wad Ahmed compared to intercrop of S. Sudanese . The nitrogen content was not significantly different between all plants in the study .While both sulphur and nitrogen to sulphur (N: S) ratio was significantly (P<0.05) different. Both . S. Sudanese and S. Sudanese intercropped with D. lablab had significantly (P<0.05) higher sulphur and lower N:S ratio than both S. bicolor cv Wad Ahmed intercropped with D. lablab.
