Effect of soil moisture stress at different stages of growth on the fodder yield of sorghum sorghum bicolor cultivar mp chari



Effect of soil moisture stress at different stages of growth on the fodder yield of sorghum sorghum bicolor cultivar mp chari



Indian Journal of Agricultural Sciences 53(1): 44-48



An experiment to study the effect of soil-moisture stress at different stages of growth on the fodder yield of 'MP Chari' sorghum [S. bicolor (Linn.) Moench] was conducted in spring seasons of 1971 and 1972 on a loam soil of medium fertility at Jhansi [India]. The fodder yield and dry matter were reduced significantly by with-holding irrigations during any one or more stages of growth studied, viz. establishment (0-30 days after sowing), vegetative lag (31-55 days after sowing) and flowering stage (56-75 days after sowing). The stage of vegetative lag was the most critical in its demand for assured water supply, whereas the other 2 stages could tolerate mild stress. For obtaining maximum production the crop needed a supply of water to maintain available soil water at or above 60% of availability in the surface depth of 60 cm root zone of the soil.
