In order to study the effect of soil fertilization systems on yield and quality of sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L) Moench) an experiment was conducted using a randomized completed block design (RCBD) with three replications in 2008 at the college of Aboureihan research farm of University of Tehran. The treatments were various levels of chemical fertilizers (N.P.K), different level of animal manure, mixture of different ratios of fertilizer and manure as integrated systems and a control without…

Effect of using different fertilizers sources on forage sorghum yield, digestibility and energy parameters by In vitro Gas Test production
The effect of using different rates of organic and mineral fertilization on forage sorghum was studied to determine the economic efficiency in obtaining a good crop in arms of quantity and quality and reduce the crop duration to provide land for cultivation another crop as well as reducing the mineral contamination of the fertilizer-producing soil.

Performance of Sweet and Forage Sorghum Grown Continuously, Double‐Cropped with Winter Rye, or in Rotation with Soybean and Maize
It is concluded that, if winter rye is to be grown as a double crop with sorghum in the North-Central region, it will likely be because of its positive influence on the environment and not because of potential for improved yield.
Corn Response to Composting and Time of Application of Solid Swine Manure
Swine production in hoop structures is a relatively new husbandry system in which a mixture of manure and bedding accumulates. This manurelbedding pack can be applied to crop fields directly from a
