Abstract:

The present research trial was carried out in kharif and summer season from year 2013-2015 at Cattle Breeding Farm, Junagadh agricultural University, Junagadh, Gujarat. Gundrijowar fodder samples were collected for quantitative HCN (mg/100 gm dry matter) concentration from eight sown plots from 15 DAS (Day after sowing) up to 60 DAS at fortnightly intervals and one more sampling was carried out when Gundrijowar fodder crops exhibit 25% flowering stage. Result revealed that concentration of HCN (mg/100 gm dry matter) in Gundrijowar fodder crop in kharif & summer season decreased significantly (p<0.05) during the year 2013 and 2015, up to 25% flowering stage. It was concluded that freshly cut Gundrijowar (Sorghum vulgare) fodder can be fed safely without any poisonous effect to animals at 25 % flowering stage.


Keywords: Gundrijowar, Hydrocyanic acid (HCN), Sorgum vulgare, DAS (Day after Sowing).
