Nutrient management for higher fodder production of sorghum: A review
Author(s): BS Meena and V Nepalia
Abstract: Adequate supply of quality forage is the basic necessity for sustainable livestock production. In India, supply of forage has always been a limiting factor for enhancing livestock production. The scope of increasing the area cultivated for forages is rather limited, because of mounting pressure and preferential need for food and commercial crops. Hence, fodder production has to be increased per unit area per unit time. Quality of forage is also very important to animal health and performance. Forage quality can be improved and the toxic principles can be alleviated by efficient nutrient management. Keeping these points in view, the literature pertaining to the fertilizer management in sorghum forage crops to obtain higher biomass production and good quality fodder has been reviewed.
