EFFECT OF SEED RATE ON THE FODDER YIELD OF SOME SELECTED MAIZE COMPOSITES
MetadataShow full item record
An experiment was conducted at Joydebpur during rabi 1989-90 and 1990-91 to find out the suitable maize composite and optimum seed rate for higher yield of fodder. Green fodder yield, density/sq.m, and plant height were significantly affected by seed rate and varieties. Average over the years, BFC-3 gave highest fodder yield (42.45 t/ha) with 60 kg secd/ha. The other two composites yielded higher with same seed rate but their yields could not exceed the yield of BFC-3 in both the years of trial.
