Grain sorghum hybrids, which promise to meet the pressure for more efficient production much as corn hybrids met a similar need 25 years ago, will be grown by American farmers on a limited scale this year. Tests of selected hybrids in sevenstates showed a substantial increase over the production of standard varieties of similar maturity in 1954 and 1955. Caution is advised in making seed purchases -- farmers should buy only tested hybrids. Initial plantings of hybrids should be grown with standard varieties for comparison. Continuing research will result in improved hybrids and will indicate the areas best suited to each.
