Effect of planting geometry and different levels of nitrogen on growth, yield and quality of multicut fodder sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L.) Monech)

Author(s): Mane Shivprasad and Rajesh Singh
Abstract: A field experiment was conducted during the “Zaid” season 2016 at the Crop Research Farm Department of Agronomy, Naini Agriculture Institute, SHUATS, Allahabad (U.P.) This area is situated on the right side of the river Yamuna and by the opposite side of Allahabad cityThe soil of the experimental field was sandy loam in texture, slightly saline in reaction (pH 7.4), medium in available nitrogen (185.5 kg/ha) and phosphorus (36.0 kg/ha) potassium (98.0 kg/ha). The experiment consisted of 12 treatment combinations comprising one multi-cut forage sorghum genotype (CSH-20) and four nitrogen levels viz., 60, 80, 100 and120N kg/ha. To evaluate the effect of planting geometry and different levels of nitrogen on growth, yield and quality of multicut fodder sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Monech] laid out in Randomized Block Design with twelve treatments replicated thrice. The treatment combinations of spacing of 30cm×10cm with 120 kg nitrogen ha-1(T8) recorded maximum higher plant height, number of leaves, dry weight, green fodder yield, leaf: stem ratio, fodder quality net return and benefit cost ratio followed by that recorded treatment spacing of 30cm×10cm with 100 kg nitrogen ha-1(T7).
