Sorghum is a cereals plant cultivated in Indonesia because it has a good adaptability and is relatively resistant to pests and diseases. In sorghum cultivation requires additional N elements from the outside because N elements are easily washed or vaporized, N elements can be added in the form of NH4NO3 compounds. This study aims to determine the effect of NH4NO3 compounds and the effective concentration of NH4NO3 compounds on the growth of sorghum sprouts. This study was conducted November-December 2017 at the Botanical Laboratory of Biology Department Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences University of Lampung. This study uses a Completely Randomized Design with 5 levels of concentration as treatment: 0% (control), 5%, 10%, 15%, and 20%. The variables observed were plant height, dry weight, root shoot ratio, chlorophyll a, chlorophyll b and total chlorophyll. The data obtained will be analyzed by variation analysis at α 5% if there is difference will be done by advanced test with honest real difference test (BNJ) at α 5%. The results showed that the effect of NH4NO3 gave significant effect on plant height, total dry weight, chlorophyll a, and total chlorophyll of sorghum plant. However, no significant effect on the ratio of root shoots and chlorophyll b. Thus the administration of NH4NO3 at concentration 15% gives an effective effect n the variable plant height, total dry weight, chlorophyll a, and total chlorophyll of sorghum plant
