Abstract The results of the three-year field research on the effects of various terms and methods of sowing on the field germination and survival of plants in seed crops of common millet of Slobozhanske and Lana varieties are given. The purpose of the research is to improve the technology of growing seeds of common millet (Panicum miliaceum L.) in the conditions of unstable humidification of the Right-Bank Forest-Steppe of Ukraine. The obtained results revealed that wild seed germination in typical years for the region with the extension of the period of sowing increases from early to late one; methods of planting don’t make an impact on the field germination of seeds of millet of both varieties; sowing of seed crops of millet in the third decade of May contributed to forming the largest density during the harvest time
Key words millet, seed crop, variety, method of sowing, sowing time
