Abstract:

Three cereals viz. oats (Avena sativa L.), barley (Hordeum vulgare) and annual rye grass (Lolium multiflorum) were evaluated in pure stands as well as in mixtures of 50:50 ratios with common vetch (Vicia sativa L.) and field pea (Pisum sativum) under temperate conditions of Kashmir Valley to address the problem of nutritious green fodder for livestock. The experiment was sown during third week of October in a randomized complete block design at Mountain Livestock Research Institute (MLRI), Manasbal of Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology (SKUAST-K), Srinagar Kashmir. The experiment was initiated during rabi 2013-14 and after completion of three years of evaluation, the results revealed that oats vetch mixture performed better in terms of green and dry matter yields. By this mixture, 398.60 quintals per hectare green fodder and 88.04 quintals per hectare dry matter yield was obtained which was 10.97 and 16.77 percent higher than oats pure stand, respectively. Similarly, it was calculated that overall oats-vetch mixture yielded 31.40 and 37.0 percent higher dry matter than barley-vetch and rye grass-vetch, respectively. It was also observed that cereal legume intercropping had maximum crude protein yield (q/ha) compared to sole cropping of cereals.
