In three dwarf late Sorghum varieties and a hybrid studied at three plant densities, high densities gave better grain yields than low densities except in 2123. The hybrid gave better yields than 2123 at all densities, but outyielded 2141 and 5921 only at the lowest density. The advantage of the hybrid lay in its heavier heads
