Title: Effect of Seeding Rates, Sowing Methods and Fertilizer Application On the Performance of Fodder Sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L.) l'ileencli) Grown on a Saliiie-Sodic Soil*
Author: Abusuwar, Awad
Abstract: A field experiment was conducted over two years (l 979 and l980) to investigate the effect of seeding rates, sowing methods and manure and urea applications on the performance of forage sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench var. Abusabcin) grown on a saline-sodic soil in the Sudan. The results revealed that planting on shoulders of the ridge proved to be a superior practice to avoid salinity hazards affecting the early stages of growth. More plants per unit area and higher yields were recorded on plants grown on shoulders of the ridge compared to those grown on top of the ridge. The application of farmyard manure alone or in combination with urea to salty soils significantly increased forage fresh and dry yields and improved forage quality.
