The research was carried out with to determine bagasse yields and silage qualities from bagasse of

some genotypes of sweet sorghum. Experiment materials consisted of twenty one sweet sorghum

lines and varieties obtained from various sources. The field experiment was conducted according to

randomized complete block design with four replications in the research area of Eastern

Mediterranean Agricultural Research Institute (Adana, Turkey 36°51' 35'' K and 35° 20' 43'' D) during

the second crop season in 2016 and 2017. Each genotype was sown in 4 rows with 5 m length and

0.7 m apart. Plants were harvested at different dates between milk and dough stages according to

genotypes. The stems which were removed from leaves and panicles were squeezed in the machine

and the remaining sap-extracted plants (bagasse) were silaged and investigated in terms of silage

quality properties. According to the two years averaged values, bagasse yield, dry matter yield, crude

protein, neutral detergent fiber (NDF), acid detergent fiber (ADF), relative feed value (RFV), lactic

acid and potassium value were ranged from 42.6 to 113.9 t ha-1, 11.6 to 40.0 t ha-1, 29.79 to 50.84 g

kg DM, 525.1 to 694.8 g kg DM, 351.2 to 486.8 g kg DM, 68.7 to 109.5, 21.8 to 46.44 g kg KM, and

1.103 to1.579 %, respectively. From the results of the study, it was concluded that bagasse of sweet

sorghum grown for the bioethanol prodution as second crop under Adana conditons could be an

alternative resource of silage for the high quality roughage production.
