Abstract: An investigation on "Status of NPK and protein in fodder of multicut forage sorghum grown under different fertility levels and varieties" under adoptive climatic conditions of Northern part of Madhya Pradesh was carried out during Kharif season 2014 at the Research Farm, College of Agriculture, R.V.S.K.V.V., Gwalior (M.P.). The experiment was laid out in factorial randomzied block design (F.R.B.D.) replicated three times with 12 treatment combinations, namely T1 (10 t of FYM + ICSSH-28), T2 (50% of RDF + ICSSH-28), T3 (50% of RDF + 5 t FYM + Azotobacter + PSB + ICSSH-28), T4 (75% RDF + ICSSH-28), T5 (75% of RDF + 2.5 t FYM + Azotobacter + PSB + ICSSH-28), T6 (100% RDF + ICSSH- 28), T7 (10 t of FYM + IS-17349), T8 (50% of RDF + IS-17349), T9 (50% of RDF + 5 t FYM + Azotobacter + PSB + IS-17349), T10 (75% RDF + IS-17349), T11 (75% of RDF + 2.5 t FYM + Azotobacter + PSB + IS-17349) and T12 (100% RDF + IS-17349). Sorghum varieties were grown by considering recommended package of practices. It is evident from results that under both cutting, treatment 10 t of FYM (F1) showed higher nitrogen, potassium and protein content in fodder, which was significantly superior over rest of the treatments. Under both cutting; treatment 75% of RDF + 2.5 t FYM + Azotobacter + PSB (F5) showed higher phosphorus content in fodder, which was significantly superior over rest of the treatments. At both cut; maximum nitrogen, potassium and protein content in fodder was recorded with V1F1 followed by V2F1 which are statistically at par from each other and significantly higher over rest of other treatment combination while maximum phosphorus content in fodder was recorded with V1F5 followed by V2F5 which are statistically at par from each other and significantly higher over rest of other treatment combination.
