Abstract: An experiment was conducted at Experimental Farm, Faculty of Agriculture, University of Khartoum in the period of 2007 to 2008 in summer and winter season to study the effect of different Khartoum state soil on the growth and quality of two varieties of sorghum, bicolor L (Abu- 70) and Pioneer). Five different soils were collected from five different locations around Khartoum state production areas, soil from along river Nil (Entisols)-(G), soil from second terrace of Shambat area.(SH), soil from third terrace at the University of Khartoum farm U of K), soil from eastern Nile (EL-hajyousif area) - (HY) and soil from production area, sand soil (EL-fteehab east) (F). Significant differences (P<0.05) were found between chemical and physical ingredients of soil samples, plant height, stem diameter and number of green leaves Soil (G) increase plant height, stem diameter and number of green leaves. Both sorghum varieties planted in soil (G) recorded significantly (P<0.05) highest values of protein content, in vitro DM digestibility and less crud fiber content compared to other soil types. Therefore, soil (G) was regarded as the best soil in Khartoum State for high quality sorghum fodder production.
