Abstract

This trial was conducted for two consecutive Kharif seasons of 2011 and 2012 to compare two interspecific hybrids of sorghum and Sudan grass, namely Mabrook and Panar 888 with two local checks Abu Sabein and Abu Sabein Kambal. Cultivars were sown in a randomized complete block design with four replicates. Data were collected on plant height, number of leaves per plant, leaf area, stem diameter, number of days to 50 % flowering, plant density, fresh weight, and dry weight. Plant height, leaf area, number of leaves per plant, plant density, fresh weight, and dry weight showed highly significant differences (P = 0.01) among the four cultivars while stem diameter showed significant differences (P = 0.05). Number of days to 50% flowering showed insignificant differences among the four cultivars. Mabrook exceeded all the other cultivars in plant height, fresh weight, and dry weight. Mabrook and Abu Sabein Kambal exceeded the others in leaf number, leaf area, and plant density.
