Seasonal variation in the chemical composition of some indigenous grasses of Kangra District



Seasonal variation in the chemical composition of some indigenous grasses of Kangra District



J. Res., Ludhiana. 5: 81-87



Bimonthly samples of 14 indigenous grasses of the Kangra District were taken from May to October 1964. On average from May/June to September/ October crude protein, Ca and P decreased from 9.08 to 5.01, 0.58 to 0.37 and 0.15 to 0.08%, respectively, and crude fibre increased from 31.48 to 37.09%. In 1965 8 grasses reappeared in the same plots in March/ April and the early growth contained more crude protein and less crude fibre than samples of these grasses taken in May/June 1964.
