Abstract

This article presents the results of sorghum and pearl millet studies conducted in order to develop the technology of their cultivation as a new forage crops for livestock in arid areas of Kazakhstan. The article presents data on the effect of seeding rates and term of sowing on seeds germination and survival of plants and a crop of verdurous masses of sorghum and pearl millet against the background of watering. The optimal seeding rate and sowing of sorghum and pearl millet in saline soils of rice irrigation systems are determined in terms of the ecological crisis in Aral Sea region, Kazakhstan.
