Effect of nitrogen and zinc on growth and yield of fodder sorghum Sorghum bicolor L moench varieties



Effect of nitrogen and zinc on growth and yield of fodder sorghum Sorghum bicolor L moench varieties







During summer season of 201Eighteen treatment combinations consisting of two varieties, viz., GFS 4 and GFS 5; three levels of nitrogen viz., 40, 80 and 120 kg N haa 1 and three levels of zinc viz., 0, 2 and 4 kg Zn haa 1 were tried in factorial randomized block design with three replications. The results indicated that among the variety of fodder sorghum GFS 5 performed better in respect to growth parameters and green forage (257 q haa 1) as well as dry matter (119 q haa 1) yield than variety GFS 4. Application of 120 kg N haa 1 increasing green forage (262.44 q haa 1) as well as dry matter yields (120.28 q haa 1) over 40 kg N haa 1 and 80 kg N haa Application of zinc @ 4 kg Zn haa 1 was found significantly super.
