Effect of sowing dates and seed rates on the forage yield of oats



Effect of sowing dates and seed rates on the forage yield of oats



Sarhad Journal of Agriculture 10(5): 473-476



A field experiment was conducted to study the effect of five seed rates 40, 60, 80, 100, and 120, kg/ha, and three sowing dates, (5th November, 20th November and 5th December, 1986) on the forage performance of oats (Avena sativa L.). A split plot arrangement with sowing dates as main plot and seeding rates as sub plot was used in randomized complete block design with four replicates. Green and dry forage yields were nonsignificantly affected by seed rate. Generally green forage yield and dry forage yields tended to increase with increased seeding rate. Maximum green forage yield (31570 kg/ha) and dry forage yield (15081 kg/ha) were obtained by the highest seed rate of 120 kg. Sowing dates significantly affected forage performance of Oats. Green forage yield and dry forage yield significantly decreased as the sowing delayed. Highest green forage yield (34276 kg/ha) and dry forage yield (16218 kg/ha) were produced by the earliest sowing date of 5th November, where as lowest green forage yield (22662 kg/ha) and dry forage yield (10996 kg/ha) were given by the 5th December date of sowing. A significant interaction between date of sowing and seed rate for forage yield existed and the highest green forage yield was obtained with 120 kg/ha seed rate when sown on 5th November. Further research is suggested.
