Sorghum is a cereal crop that has the potential to be developed on dry land as a food source, has the ability to adapt widely, and requires less agricultural inputs than other food crops. Ende Regency is an area that has a dry climate and is dominated by dry land agriculture, so it has the potential for the development of sorghum plants. The purpose of this study was to conduct an agronomic study of the development of Nambu sorghum variety with the application of chicken manure. The research was conducted using a randomized block design, with 5 treatments chicken manure doses, i.e. A0: 0 tons per ha (control), A1: 3.25 tons per ha, A2: 6.5 tons per ha, A3: 9.75 tons per ha, and A4: 13 tons per ha. The application of chicken manure of 13 tons per ha to sorghum plants resulted in growth and yield variables with the highest values, i.e., plant height 277.08 cm, leaf number 15.69 pieces, leaf area 8720.03 cm2, fresh stover weight base 354.69 g, dry stover weight 249.38 g, panicle length 20.54 g, panicle dry weight 24.63 g, number of seeds per panicle 1392.19 g, 1000 seeds weight 7.50 g.
