Abstract

To evaluate the relative merits of hybrid varieties of grain sorghum 23 hybrids were grown in comparison with established varieties in trials conducted in grain sorghum growing areas of the state. Most of the trials involved non-replicated strip plantings in commercial fields. The cultural practices—including harvest—were typical of those used by growers in the particular areas where the tests were made.
