Abstract:
An On farm testing (OFT) was carried out by Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Almora during kharif season on 2013-14, 2014-15, 2015-16 and 2016-17 at farmers fields in village Shela-Uleni in Chaukhutia block in Uttarakhand, to compare the green fodder sorghum yield of local available variety with the high yielding hybrid (CSH20MF and CSH24 MF) for the enhancement of availability of green fodder in hilly area. that the percentage increase in yield of fodder sorghum hybrid CSH20MF over local variety was 57.63%, 62%, 47.92% and 98.26% continuously during 4 years from 2013-14, 2014-15, 2015-16 and 2016-17, respectively. In comparision of local variety to second hybrid i.e. CSH 24 MF, the percentage increase in yield of fodder sorghum hybrids CSH24MF over local variety was 69.79%, 49.32%, 59.84% and 80.02% continuously during 4 years from 2013-14, 2014-15, 2015-16 and 2016-17, respectively. However, both the fodder sorghum hybrids performed better than local variety during all the four years. It was further found that B: C ratio was maximum in T3 (CSH24MF) during 2013-14 i.e.2.83. Thus, the productivity of fodder sorghum could be increased with the adoption of high yielding varieties. The study resulted to convincing the farming community for higher productivity and returns.
