The influence of the in-row sowing rate on the green mass productivity in flowering stage of different sorghum x Sudan grass hybrid varieties was studied in 2008-2009. In conditions of significant agro climatic differences in 2008 and 2009 the denser sowings, form higher yield of green and dry mass, and the rainfalls’ distribution is significant for the more favorable structure of yield. The tested varieties and hybrids have high productive potential for stable yields of green mass in drought conditions.

Key words: sorghum x Sudan grass hybrids, varieties, sowing rate, productivity
