Effect of graded doses of N and forage sorghum cultivars on the yield and quality of forage sorghum Moench



Effect of graded doses of N and forage sorghum cultivars on the yield and quality of forage sorghum Moench



Annals of Biology 16(1): 71-74



Application of nitrogen at 80 kg/ha significantly increased the green and dry fodder yield, content of crude protein, crude fat, mineral matter, nitrogen free extract, crude fibre, accumulation of crude protein, crude fat, mineral matter, NFE and crude fibre, metabolizable energy, and monetary returns and B : C ratio over their lowre doses. The highest green (335.05 q/ha) and dry fodder (113.49 q/ha) yield and net realization (Rs. 9756/ha) were recorded in case of nitrogen at 80 kg/ha. Among varieties, SU-1 significantly increased the green and dry fodder, crude protein content at 60 and 80 DAS, crude fat content, NFE, accumulation of crude protein, crude fat accumulation, mineral matter accumulation, NFE uptake, metabolizable energy, returns and B : C ratio over Rajasthan Chari-1 and Rajasthan Chari-2. It recorded the highest green fodder (317.28 q/ha), dry fodder (110.39 q/ha) and net return (Rs. 9191/ha), which was 3.02 and 9.43, 10.50 and 11.97 and 4.21 and 13.50% higher over Rajasthan Chari-1 and Rajasthan Chari-2, respectively.
