This experiment was carried out to select the $Sorghum{\times}Sudangrass$ hybrid of high productivity suited for soiling, and growth characteristics and productivity of 9 cultivars of introduced $Sorghum{\times}Sudangrass$ hybrids have been evaluated at the experimental forage field, College of Natural Science of Kon-Kuk university in Chungju over three years. The results obtained are summarized as follows : 1. NC855, Sordan79 and T. E haygrazer were taller than the other varieties as range from 209cm to 213cm. while Supergrazer was the shortest type as 173cm. Among the nine varieties used, NC855 and Pioneer 988 were classified as early maturing varieties, but G83F, FP5 and Supergrazer were classified as lately maturing varieties. 2. The stem diameter of Supergnzer and Sordan79 were thicker than the other varieties, while NC855, Garst757 and FP5 were thin. 3. The tillers of $Sorghum{\times}Sudangrass$ hybrids were ranged from 3.1 to 4.0 and NC855 and FP5 had 4.0 tillers per plant. The dead stubble of Sordan79 was the lowest as 4.0 percentage, while Supergrazer was the highest as 9.8 percentage(P<0.05). 4. GW9110G and T. E haygrazer were susceptible to lodging(P
