Jowar (KafEr corn-Sorghum vulgare: Tamil, cholam; Kanarese, jola) is one of the important food and fodder crops cultivated in different parts of India. Over considerable parts of Deccan and Central India, it is the main source of sustenance for man and animals. It is also grown, to a considerable extent, in other countries especially in Africa, China, U.S.A., and South America!. During 1950-5 I, the production of the grain in India was of the order of 5.1 million tons?. The chemical composition of one sample of Jowar was determined by Ranganathan, Sundarajan, and Swaminathan3 • Very little systematic work has been done on the effect of varietial difference on the chemical composition or on the nutritive value of the grain as judged by animal experiments. The present paper deals with studies on the chemical composition of six strains of J owar and the nutritive value of J owar as compared with wheat.
