Abstract:

Oats are grown for use as grain as well as forage and fodder, straw for bedding, hay, haylage, silage and chaff. The study was conducted at different villages of Tonk district of Rajasthan. The seed of Kent variety of Oat were provided from Central Sheep and Wool Research Institute, Avikanagar, Tonk, Rajasthan for the study of comparison with local varieties. Among the different sites green fodder production of Diggi village of Mlapura was lowest (166.7 q/ha) because of poor quality of soil but production of Banasthali village trial was excellent (231.4 q/ha) because of fertile soil and good availability of water. At KVK farm trial average production (199.2 q/ha) of green fodder was noted which slightly poor in comparison with other trials due to poor soil fertility and insufficient water availability. The production potential irrespective of trial sites was higher in oat fodder variety Kent. It can be concluded from the total production of green fodder that the major variation was found due to environment and improvement might came through the availability of resources.
