Abstract
In a field experiment in kharif 1991/92 in Udaipur, Rajasthan, India, sorghum cv. Rajasthan Chari-1, Rajasthan Chari-2 and SU-1 were given 0, 40, 80 or 120 kg N/ha. Green and dry fodder yields, contents of crude protein, crude fat, mineral matter, nitrogen free extract (NFE) and crude fibre, accumulation of crude protein, crude fat, mineral matter, NFE and crude fibre, metabolizable energy, monetary returns and benefit:cost ratio increased with increasing N rate up to 80 kg/ha. SU-1 had significantly higher green and dry fodder yields, contents of crude protein, crude fat and NFE, accumulation of crude protein, crude fat, mineral matter and NFE, metabolizable energy, returns and benefit:cost ratio than the other cultivars.
