Abstract

Enchev S., K. Slanev, G. Kikindonov and Tz. Kikindonov, 2018. Effect of the hybridization on the green mass productivity in milky-wax stage of sorghum x sudangrass hybrids++. Bulg. J. Agric. Sci., 24 (Suppl. 2):68-72

In recent years Sorghum x Sudangrass hybrids are becoming a promising forage crop for production of green mass especially in conditions of extreme drought during vegetation. The results from tests for productivity heterosis in Sorghum x Sudangrass hybrids in the period 2015-2016 are presented. The registered heterosis effects towards pollinators and the standard varieties enables the selection of hybrids with high green mass yield potential. Perspective hybrids have been selected with proven higher green and dry mass productivity than the standard commercial varieties.
