AbstractA greenhouse investigation was conducted to determine the influence of various lime levels on the growth and yields of Hegari sorghum. Greenmatter yields of sorghum grown in soils receiving slightly over 4 tons of limestone to the acre were significantly higher than that from the soils receiving only 0.7 ton per acre, or receiving lime at the rate of 9.2 ton to the acre. The extreme low lime treatment, 0.7 ton to the acre, resulted in significantly lower dry-matter production, but no significant differences were measured between treatments ranging from 2.2 to 9.2 tons of lime to the acre. Liming influences significantly the blooming period of the sorghum plant.
