ABSTRACT
This work was carried out in order to evaluate the intercropping of forage grasses with grain sorghumin two localities of Minas Gerais State. Two experiments were set in experimental areas of the Empresa de PesquisaAgropecuária de Minas Gerais (Epamig), in Leme do Prado and in Jaíba. The design was in randomized blockswith four replications. Grain yield, plant height and productivity of dry matter were affected by the cultivation site.Highest productivity of forage dry matter was observed in the sorghum Panicum maximum Jacq. intercropping, inthe two localities. Single sorghum presented greater grain yield in both localities. The intercropping of sorghum withBrachiaria decumbens and sorghum with Andropogon gayanus presented greater grain yield in Jaíba and Leme doPrado, respectively.
