This Study was conducted to find out the possibilities of growing sonic sorghum and sorghum x sudangrass hybrid cultivars as second crop after barley in Ercis-Van ecological condition in 2003. The experiment was designed as randomized complete block design with three replications. In the experiment, one sorghum cultivars (Rox) and seven sorghum x sudangrass hybrid cultivars (Grazer, Seweet Sioux, GW-9110, Sugar Leaf, Grass-II, 877 and Gozde-80) were used. Significant differences were determined among the cultivars used in the research. Avarege green herbage, herbage yields changed between 42000-82000 kg ha(-1), hay yield 9770-20 550 kg ha(-1), respectively. The highest herbage yield was obtained from seweet Sioux (82 000 kg ha(-1)), followed by 877-cultivar (74 000 kg ha(-1)). According to this results, Seweet Sioux and 877 sorghum x sudangrass hybrid cultivars had the highest green herbage and hay yield, therefore this cultivars are suggested as second crop in Ercis-Van ecological condition.
