The agronomic traits, morphological composition and forage yield of seven forage sorghum genotypes were evaluated in two municipalities of Western Bahia, between January and May of 2017. A randomized complete block design with three replications was used. The genotypes tested were: Podium, Formoso, BRS-610, IPA-1011, IPA-467, SF-15 and SS-318. The genotypes SF-15 e IPA-467 were taller. BRS-610, Podium and SS-318 had greater averages in the length and diameter of the panicle. For Western Bahia, BRS-610 and Podium hybrids are recommended due to greater forage yields and panicle percentage.
