Abstract:

Supply of good quality and adequate quantities of fodder play an important role in improving the health and productivity of animals. Green and dry fodders are cheaper sources than concentrate feed, hence its inclusion would curtail the cost of feed purchase. Unfortunately, in our country there is acute scarcity of green and dry fodder mainly due to very less area available for its cultivation. In future also there are less chances to increase area under forage cultivation because of heavy pressure of burgeoning human and livestock population on meager land. Among various improved agro techniques Integrated Nutrient Management (INM) has been proved to be the best options to augment good quality forage production per unit area by sustaining soil fertility and its productivity under limited land resources available today.
