Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted during Kharif season 2020 at Crop Research Farm, Department of Agronomy, SHUATS, Allahabad, (U.P.). The soil of experimental plot was sandy loam in texture, nearly neutral in soil reaction (pH 6.7). The treatment consisted of different Date of Sowing (15 June, 1 July, 15 July) and Spacing (30cm x 20cm), (40cm x 20cm), 50x20(cm2). There were nine treatments which replicated thrice. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design. The result showed that there were significant increase in growth and Forage yield parameters viz., plant height (98.3 cm), number of branch plant-1 (19.1), Dry weight (15.5 g), and CGR (24.7 g/m2/day), RGR(0.05 g/g/day) and yield and yield attributes viz., Green Fresh yield (20.6 t/ha) and Hay yield (5.8 t/ha) and Crude Protein Content (17.4%), Crude Fiber Content (22.7%) were recorded higher with T₅ (40cm x 20cm) +1 July. However maximum net returns (₹44760 /ha), gross return (₹ 72500 /ha) and B:C ratio (1.7) were also recorded in this treatment.
