Yield and economics of late sown Rabi fodders with different plant stands and nutrient support in Jharkhand


Suman Shital, Suman Sashi and Birendra Kumar

A field experiment was conducted at Forage Research field under BAU, Ranchi (Jharkhand) to utilize the rice-fallow land under late sown condition.
Finding showed that, Rabi fodder viz Oat, Rye grass and Berseem grown with 25 per cent more seeds or plant population and fertilized with 50 per cent more nitrogen than their respective doses recorded better growth and yield than lower levels of plant density and nitrogen levels. In Oat, Rye grass & Berseem the more Green fodder yield (GFY 353.61, 282.63 & 430.61 q ha-1), Dry fodder yield (DFY 113.7, 57.52 & 79.69 q ha-1) and per day productivity (3.21, 2.57 & 3.91 q ha-1day-1) were observed. Maximum gross return (₹.1, 29,184 ha-1), Net return (₹. 94,589 only) and profitability Rs. 860 ha-1 day-1 were recorded under Berseem sown with 125 per cent recommended seed rate at 150 per cent RDN.
