Abstract:

The field experiment was conducted at Post Graduate Research Institute in Animal Sciences, Kattupakkam, Kancheepuram District, Tamil Nadu, India during Feb.to June of 2017-18 to study the irrigation frequency for CN hybrid grass and asses the growth and yield of Cumbu Napier Hybrid grass variety CO-4. The experiment was laid out with Randomised Block Design. The treatment consist of different irrigation frequency such as daily irrigation (T1) alternate day irrigation (T2) once in two days (T3) , once in four days (T4), once in six days (T5) once in eight days (T6) once in ten days (T7), once in twelve days (T8) and once in fourteen days (T9) were compared. Among the different irrigation frequency, irrigation at once in four days and irrigation at once in six days significantly increased the growth and yield characters, reduced the cutting frequency, increased number of cuttings and yield of Cumbu Napier Hybrid Grass. These two treatments were comparable with each other. The maximum plant height, number of tillers hill- 1, Fodder yield were higher in these treatments. The fodder yield was lower in fourteen days of irrigation and twelve days of irrigation frequency.
