The data obtained were analyzed using ANOVA and proceed with further testing using the least significant difference (LSD) at 5% level. From the research that has been conducted granting combination of manure fertilizer with NPK fertilizer was significantly affecting the growth of plant height, stem diameter, leaf number, days to flowering and panicle length sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L.)
