We study the asymptotic Dirichlet problem for Killing graphs with prescribed mean curvature H in warped product manifolds Mx rho R. In the first part of the paper, we prove the existence of Killing graphs with prescribed boundary on geodesic balls under suitable assumptions on H and the mean curvature of the Killing cylinders over geodesic spheres. In the process we obtain a uniform interior gradient estimate improving previous results by Dajczer and de Lira. In the second part we solve the asymptotic Dirichlet problem in a large class of manifolds whose sectional curvatures are allowed to go to 0 or to -infinity provided that H satisfies certain bounds with respect to the sectional curvatures of M and the norm of the Killing vector field. Finally we obtain non-existence results if the prescribed mean curvature function H grows too fast.
