Yields of forage sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench.) were significantly different when grown under two management systems over a 5-year period. Allowing regrowth to occur until October 15 resulted in first harvest forage sorghum yields in the succeeding season of approximately 79% of standard tillage. Fertilization response was also influenced by regrowthmanagement. Similarly, in a 2-year grain sorghumguar rotation, guar (Cyamopsis tetragonoloba (L.) Taub.) yields were reduced following a grain sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench.) stubble regrowth system.
