Cite article:- Sreedhar S., Ranganadham1 M. (2023). TIME AND MOTION STUDIES ON FORAGE FARM OPERATIONS FOR IMPORTANT FODDER CROPS*. Agricultural Science Digest. 29(2): . doi: .
A time study was under taken to establish time requirements for important forage farm
operations. Among the various forage crop operations harvesting required more labour followed
by irrigation and loading of fodder into the transport vehicles. Land preparation consumed less
time among the operations. On comparison of total time requirement paragrass required more
time than the other crops owing to the difference in sowing method and more number of cuttings
obtained during a given period of time. Lower total time requirement for jowar crop may be
attributed to simple sowing and harvesting methods.
