Stimulation of sweet sorghum seed

Presented are research results on the efficiency of different ways of stimulating Sweet sorghum seeds using microelements and microfertilizers for pre-sowing treatment. We established that they improve seed germination power both in laboratory and field conditions, promote intensive growth and development of plants during the growing season as well as better preservation of plants and increase in their productivity. The most effective options to stimulate sorghum seeds appeared microfertilizer Avatar and Rost-concentrat that provided the highest crop productivity of 42.5 to 47.3 t of dry matter per 1 ha with dry matter content of 18.2 to 18.8% and sugar content of 12.8 to 13.2%, respectively.
