Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at Instructional Farm, Rajasthan College of Agriculture, MPUAT, Udaipur during Kharif, 2018 on sandy clay loam soil to evaluate the effect of fertility levels on single-cut fodder sorghum genotypes. Fifteen treatment combinations consisted of five genotypes SPV 2296, SPV 2316, SPV 2445, CSV 21F and CSV 30F, three fertility levels 75%, 100% and 125% RDF (*100% RDF 80 kg N + 40 kg P2O5 + 40 kg K2O ha-1) were laid out in Factorial Randomized Block Design with three replications. Results indicated that among the genotypes, SPV 2445 of single-cut fodder sorghum performed better in respect to growth parameters and green fodder (57.34 t ha-1) as well as dry fodder (14.22 t ha-1) yield than other genotypes. The crop fertilized with 125 per cent RDF performed better in respect to growth parameters and recorded significantly higher green (55.78 t/ha) and dry (13.87 t/ha) fodder yield.
