Fonio (Digitaria exilis (Kippist) Stapf), considered as a minor cereal contributes to overcome the periods of welding in rural zone. Its culture is made in an abstract way and the increasingly weak outputs requiring the revision of this farming system. The objective of this study is to contribute to the improvement of the productivity of fonio in Côte d'Ivoire. With this intention, in the commune of Korhogo, the effect of three modes of sowing on the growth and the productivity of fonio was evaluated in a device in randomized complete blocks with four (04) repetitions and one (01) factor. The observations related to the phenology, the parameters of growth and the yield. The results showed an output raised on the level of sowing to stolen and a good growth on the level of sowing in seed hole except the height of the seedling. However, it would be interesting for a future study, to evaluate the effect of these three modes of sowing, compound with various mineral and organic manures on the growth and the productivity of fonio. .
