Abstract:
The experiment was carried out to study the influence of various sowing dates on growth, yield and economics of different fodder genotypes during kharif 2018. The results revealed that significantly higher growth attributes at 60DAS (1st cutting) and at 60 days after 1st cut such as plant height (192.74 and 184.71 cm), number of functional leaves (10.07 and 9.86), leaf area plant-1 (39.18 and 38.16 dm2), dry matter weight plant-1 (40.27 and 38.24 g) and stem diameter plant-1 (1.98 and 1.93 cm). Were recorded with 23th MW (07 June) sowing than sowing at 25th and 27th MW. Similarly, among the various fodder genotypes the results revealed that significantly higher growth attributes were recorded by the genotype SSG-59-3 at 60DAS (1st cutting) and at 60 days after 1st cut such as plant height (178.32 and 175.08 cm), number of functional leaves (9.20 and 8.49), leaf area plant-1 (36.00 and 35.20 dm2), dry matter weight plant-1 (33.83 and 36.04 g) and stem diameter plant-1 (1.83and 1.74 cm) than SSG-898 and Ankur Heera. With regards to yield and economics, the highest green forage yield (712.05 q ha-1), dry forage yield (199.27 q ha-1) and B: C ratio (4.97) were found in earlier sowing time (23rdMW - 07 June) as compared to later sowing dates 25th (24 June) and 27th (MW -7 July). Similarly in case of different fodder genotypes, the fodder sorghum genotype SSG-59-3 recorded maximum green forage yield (670.67 q ha-1), dry forage yield (183.84 q ha-1) and B: C ratio (4.68).
