Sorghum (Sorghum bicolor L.) is one of the types of plants in grain that has lots of benefits ranging from seeds to stem and leaves. In Indonesia the cultivation of sorghum crop is influenced by several factors. One of the factors is the nutrient elements. Nutrient elements required for the growth of sorghum in the form of the element nitrogen (N) and potassium (K). One of the compounds that contain the element of N and K is KNO3. This research aims to know the influence of the compound KNO3 and concentration of the compound KNO3 for proper growth of sorghum sprouts. This research conducted in November-December 2017 at the Botanical Laboratory Department of Biology Faculty of mathematics and Natural Sciences University of Lampung. This study used a Randomized Complete Design with 5 degrees concentration of KNO3 0% (control), 5%, 10%, 15%, and 20%. The variables on the observed were higher plants, plant dry weight, root shoot ratio, chlorophyll a, b, and total. The data obtained will be analysed with the analysis range on α 5% if there is a difference test will be performed with real honest difference test (BNJ) α at 5%. The results showed that administering the compound KNO3 give real effect against high plants, dry weight, shoot root ratio, chlorophyll a, b and total. Concentration of KNO3 20% is effective for the growth of sorghum sprouts.
