In general, the appearance sorghum agronomic characteristics are believed to be very dynamic, highly dependent on the nature of the genetic and the environment in which plants grow. This study aims to determine the agronomic characteristics of some sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench] genotypes under intercropping with cassava. The experiment was arranged in a Split-Plot Randomized Complete Block Design with three replications, in which cropping systems (sorghum monoculture and sorghum-cassava intercropping) as the main plots and 34 sorghum genotypes as subplots. Our results showed that there were less leaf number, grain number, and grain weight when intercropped with cassava than monoculture. There were differences among all genotypes for all growth and yield components observed. Except for 100-grain weight, in general there was no interaction effect between intercropping and genotype. Although genotypes of GH-1, GH-6, dan P/F 5-193-C are promising as producers of forage, but potentially decrease in shoot dry weight when intercropped with cassava. Similarly, genotype of P/F 5-193-C which also potential as a grain producer tend to decrease in grain weight when intercropped with cassava.
