In a field trial, sorghum X Sudan grass cv. Sudax SX-11 was grown at 0.25-62.7 plants/m2 and harvested 60 or 103 days after emergence. At the first harvest significant relationships among various physiological components and chemical composition measurements included a positive correlation between P and CP contents and a negative correlation between LAI and water-use efficiency. At the 2nd harvest P uptake showed a highly significant positive correlation with contents of CP, Scandinavian fodder units and gross energy. A density of 19-22 plants/m2 gave the highest yield and nutritive value.
