Author(s): Brajkishor Prajapati and Kewalanand
Abstract: The experiment was conducted at sorghum Agronomy block of Instructional Dairy Farm, Nagla, Govind Ballabh Pant University of Agriculture and Technology, Pantnagar, Udham Singh Nagar, Uttarakhand (India) during 2015 and 2016 to evaluate suitable fodder based intercropping for quality fodder production. Randomized block design was used with three replications consisting of 10 treatments as detailed in materials and methods. Sweet sorghum+cowpea out yielded over other intercropping systems. Highest value of crude protein and digestible dry matter content were in the fodder obtained from maize+cowpea. Pearl millet+phillipesara could not perform better. Thus sweet sorghum+cowpea intercropping system was best to get higher yield and quality fodder during Kharif season.
