To overcome this anomaly Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Unnao were conducted frontline demonstrations in farmers’ fields at various villages in the district with high yielding and no. of cutting variety SSG-5000 and applying scientific practices in cultivation through broadcasting method. The Sorghum-Sudan grass productivity and economic returns under improved technologies were calculated and compared with the prevailing farmers’ practice.
