Abstract:

The experiment was conducted during rabi season of 2016-17 at Fodder Agronomy block of Instructional Dairy Farm (IDF), Nagla of the Govind Ballabh Pant University of Agriculture and Technology, Pantnagar, Udham Singh Nagar, Uttarakhand, India to correlation study between quality traits and yields of fodder obtained from intercropping systems. Randomized block design was used with four replications consisting of 10 treatments as detailed in materials and methods. The analysis of data indicated that dry matter content was positively correlated with cell wall contents. All cell wall structural components (NDF/ADF/hemicellulose) showed positive correlation with each other. There existed negative association with RFV, TDN, cell content, crude protein content (CP) and dry matter intake (DMI). N content, CP content and DMI showed significant negative correlation with NDF and hemicellulose but positive association with DMD and RFV. The cell content showed significant negative correlation with cell wall components and positive association with N content, CP content and DMI. DMD was non significantly and positively associated with RFV, N content, CP content and DMI while significantly and positively association with TDN. DM content was positively correlated with all yields (GFY, DFY, DDMY, CPY) and this association was significant. NDF was positively associated with GFY, DFY and DDMY but significantly negative with CPY.
