Abstract:

The field experiment was conducted during kharif season of 2019at Fodder Production Unit of Livestock Farm Complex Department, Veterinary College Bidar. The aim of the experiment was to study the performance of different sources of livestock and poultry waste as organic manures on growth and yield of fodder maize. The experimental layout which was laid out in Randomized Block Design (RBD) with three replications.The results revealed that treatment T5(Poultry Manure 12 t ha-1) has performed significantlybetter than all other treatments namely, plant height (206.47 cm), number of leaves plant-1 (12.00), dry weight (28.82 g), leaf area index (5.57), stalk length (140.66 cm), stalk girth (13.47 cm), number of cobs plant-1 (2.33), cob Length (16.35), cob girth (15.52), cob weight (85.35 g), green cob weight per m2 (3175.52 g), green cob weight per ha-1 (3175.52 g), green fodder yield plant-1 (195.75 g), green fodder yield per m2 (3132.05 g), green fodder yield ha-1 (31.32 t),dry fodder yield plant-1 (41.22 g), dry fodder yield per m2 (659.57 g) and dry fodder yield ha-1 (6.60 t). Whereas, treatment T1 (Control) has performed poor among all the treatments. However, treatment T4 (Sheep Manure 12 t ha-1), T9 (Fermented Bio-Slury [Dung + Urine (1:1)] Soil Application 20 t ha-1and Foliar Spray (10%) @ 15, 30 & 45 DAS) and T8 {Fresh Bio-Slury [Dung + Urine (1:1)]} Soil Application 20 t ha-1 and Foliar Spray (10%) @ 15, 30 & 45 DAS) were statistically at par with treatment T5 (Poultry Manure 12 t ha-1), respectively.
