Abstract:

The experiment was conducted during rabi season of 2017-18 at experimental block of Murjhad farm, College of Agriculture, Balaghat, Madhya Pradesh, India to evaluate yield and quality parameters of rabi season forage crops. The treatments consisted of four crops i.e. sole oat, sole makkhan grass, sole local rye and sole berseem in a randomized block design with seven replications. The analysis of data indicated that dry matter content, green fodder yield, dry fodder yield and digestible dry matter yield were highest in case of makkhan grass over other crops. At 3rd cutting, makkhan grass yielded significantly more green fodder yield compared to berseem and oat. The total dry fodder yield of makkhan grass was significantly increased by 33.35, 7.38 and 7.77 per cent, respectively over berssem, oat and local rye grass. Whereas, crude protein content, dry matter digestibility and crude protein yield was highest in berseem than other crops. Crude protein yield was increased 19.53, 52.23 and 28.71 per cent at 3rd cutting and 15.32, 50.54 and 24.19 per cent at 4th cutting in berseem crop over makkhan grass, oat and local rye grass, respectively. At 2nd, 3rd and 4th cuttings, digestible dry matter yield from makkhan grass was significantly higher than other crops.


Keywords: Crude protein content, dry matter content, digestible dry matter content, green fodder yield
