Evaluation of suitable winter forage crops in rotation with Sudan grass for a moderate alkali soil with sodic water irrigation



Evaluation of suitable winter forage crops in rotation with Sudan grass for a moderate alkali soil with sodic water irrigation



Forage Research 28(3): 117-123



In a field study, conducted during 1992-93 to 1995-96 in Haryana, India, on a moderately alkaline soil (pH 9.29), the effect of gypsum application was studied for three years from 1992-93 to 1995-96 on six winter forage crops viz., berseem (Egyptian clover) (Trifolium alexandrinum), shaftal (Persian clover) (Trifolium resupinatum), oats (Avena sativa), barley (Hordeum vulgare), senji (Sweet clover) (Melilotus indica) and metha (Fenugreek) (Trigonella foenum-graecum).
