Abstract

Application of 80 kg/ha nitrogen significantly increased the plant height at 60 DAS
and at 80 DAS, leaves per plant, stem thickness, green and dry fodder yield g/plant, green
and dry fodder yield, gross realization, n~t realization and S:C ratio over their lower doses.
Significantly higher plant height at 60 and 80 DAS, leaves/plant at 60 and 80DAS, stem
thickness, yield of green and dry fodder g/plant and q/ha, net return and S:C ratio was
reported by variety SU-1 which was higher over Rajasthan chari-1 and Rahasthan chari-2.
Variety SU-1 recorded the highest green fodder (317.28 q/hal, dry fodder (110.39 q/ha)
yield and new realization (Rs. 9191/ha) which was 3.02 and 9.43,10.50 and 11.79 and
4.21 and 13.50 per cent higher over Rajasthan chari-1 and Rajasthan chari-2.
