Studies on forage use before winter and spring production in barley and wheat 2. effect of seeding date seeding rate and fertilizer level on growth of barley leaves used as forage and its grain yield
Research Reports of the Rural Development Administration 29(1 CROPS): 178-187
This experiment was conducted to know the possibility of leaf utilization of barley and wheat before winter for green forage to livestock without reducing grain yield in Chinju, southern region of Korea from 1983 to 1986. Green forage productivity of Chalbori (barley) was higher than that of Oweolbori and Olmil (wheat). By early-seeding and more-fertilizing, green forage could be produced up to 1572-2102 kg/10a. Dry forage which was composed of fat (5.6-7.8%), protein (19.0-27.0%), ash (10.5-14.7%), sugar (8.5-19.3%) and cellulose (21.1-27.0%) was regarded as a good fodder. Grain yields of Olmil and Chalbori cut before winter were higher than that of non-cut conventional practice. Income could be enhanced up from 2 to 60% by cutting for green forage in Olmil, Chalbori and Oweolbori cultivars.
