Conditions that produce high nitrate can also increase prussic acid toxicity.Forages of All Seasons - Managing Forages to Minimize Prussic Acid Poisoning provides Wyoming producers with information about how to fight prussic acid poisoning in their crops before it causes problems for their livestock.
