Abstract

Three conventional tillage methods combined with two fertilizing levels were
compared using two different maize and sorghum hybrids in terms of yields and quality yields parameters (test weight and 1000-kernel weight). Autumn plow and N120P70 fertilizing treatment determined the higher yields and quality parameters values for both maize and sorghum. Fertilizing treatment with N120P70 lead to significant yield increases with 11-19 q/ha for maize and 8 q/ha for sorghum. On three years average the best yield results were recorded by Partizan (maize hybrid) and Fundulea 21 (sorghum)
