  • Product Description

Being an agriculture country Pakistan is facing shortage of green forage due to harsh summer and winter frost.Sorghum fodder is the basic feed for live stock and especially valuable for feeding in the plain regions. Cured sorghum fodder, with a little protein supplement, maintains cattle in good condition throughout the winter with little or no gain supplement. Its green fodder contains 70% carbohydrates, minerals, crude fat and nitrogen free extract. Multicut sorghum is a better replacement because it can withstand in harsh environment and has xerophytic characteristics.this study was proposed to evaluate different levels of nitrogen and sowing methods for sorghum forage. In this experiment different levels of nitrogen fertilizer i.e. 0, 57.5, 28.75,45 kg N/ha and sowing methods 1. broad coast 2. Line sowing (30 cm b/w rows)were used. It was concluded that nitrogen application N2 (57.5 kg/ha) and line sowing (30 cm b/w rows) with three cutting system showed better results among all observations, thus maximum production for multicut sorghum forage was obtained under agro climatic conditions of Faislabad, Pakistan.
