Sorghum (Sorghum bicolor) is the best fodder crop in many countries for fulfilling the need of daily food of the cattle. The area under cultivation is decreasing day by day and pressure for fodder production is increasing. Sorghum is best known for its palatability and digestibility character which make it superior than other kharif season fodder crops. Study was carried out in Lovely Professional University, Phagwara experimental field to check out the effect of different organic and inorganic combination on the growth parameter of fodder crops. Inorganic fertilizer NPK and organic fertilizers FYM, flyash and vermicompost were used. Data was recorded at 60 and 120 days after sowing. SPSS software was used to analyse the data statistically. The experiment was carried out in year 2017 in kharif season. Eight treatments with combination of different organic and inorganic were used along with three replication. Crop growth parameters (Plant height, Stem girth, Number of leaves, Leave length and Plant population per plot) were observed. Crop growth parameters (Plant height, leaves length and number of leaves, stem girth and plant population) were measured at 60 DAS and 120 DAS.T8 (25%RDF + 25%FYM + 25%Flyash + 25%Vermicompost) gave significant result in term of growth characters with respect to control treatment (no application of organic and inorganic fertilizers).
