Evaluation of different cultivars of sorghum for fodder quality and agronomic performance in Semi-Arid Tropics uri icon

abstract

  • Thirty four improved sorghum cultivars were evaluated for fodder quality and agronomic performance using twocuts harvested during the rainy season 2014 at ICRISAT, Patancheru following randomized complete block designwith two replications. Within cuts consistent significant cultivar difference were only observed for biomass yieldswhich ranged from 17.3 - 33.8 t ha-1 in the first cut to 3.2 and 17.4 t ha-1 in the second cut. Within and across cuts cultivar-dependent variations in fodder quality traits were statistically largely insignificant and inconsistent
