Study on the growth and yield components of appearance some sorghum genotypes carried out beginning March 2014 until June 2014 in Limau Manih Padang. The purpose of research was to look at the differences in growth and yield components of plant sorghum genotypes in some lowland areas. A genotype test is numbered genotype in G10, G15, G33, G34, G38 and G41 originating from Balitsereal Maros is a collection of the Faculty of agriculture Unand. Methods used in this research is planted genotype sorghum in a plot undersized 1.5 x 2 m. Sample observed a carpel of a genotype is sample 5. Recording quantitative data which were made to the appearance of high-growth component of the sorghum plant, number of leaves, while the dry weights of agronomist components plant dry weight, root dry weight, panicle length, panicle and 1000 seed weight of each plant. The observations indicate that the G41 highest (337cm) and has the heaviest weighting panicle (80 g), while the G15 has dried matter weight (323g), G33 has the most lengthy panicle (28 cm) and weighs the heaviest roots (41g). Weight of 1000 seeds is the most heavily owned by sorghum with G38 numbered 47, 5 g.
