Effect of graded doses of N and forage sorghum cultivars on the yield and quality of forage sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench)



Effect of graded doses of N and forage sorghum cultivars on the yield and quality of forage sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench)



Annals of Biology Ludhiana 16(1): 71-74



In a field experiment in kharif 1991/92 in Udaipur, Rajasthan, India, sorghum 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.
