AbstractTo investigate the effect of electric shock on growth variation of sorghum. Seed of two Varieties Inkath and Gezea113 of crop were germinated. Seedling were socked in 1% NaCl solution for 6h then transferred to container with same solution. Wire with two polar were connected to the container and AC current 220V was switched with 2, 4 and 6 Amber for 5 minutes. Seedling then washed and planted at the field. Electric shock induced significant variations in most of agronomic traits studies. Inkath variety showed response to electric shock an increase 35% in grain yield. Electric shock induced an increase in plant height, leaf area per plant, number of pod per plant, number of head per plant, plant dry weight and grian weight per head for SH3 treatment in M1 and M2.
