Abstract:
Field trial on the effect of agronomic practices (sowing dates, sowing methods and harvesting frequencies) on fresh forage and seed yield of berseem was conducted at Students Farm, Sindh Agriculture University Tandojam. Results indicated that plant height, number of branches, fresh forage and seed yield were affected significantly by all the treatments as well as their interactions. Delay in sowing at 15 days interval from 1st November to 1st December depressed the fresh forage and seed yield, but seed yield was comparatively better in medium sowing, ( 15th Nov.) Seed broadcasted resulted in higher fresh forage and seed yield as compared to line sowing. Crop left after one cutting, progressively increased seed yield, but reduced the fresh forage yield, it was higher at 2nd cutting. It is suggested that for obtaining better fresh forage and seed yield, the seed should be broadcasted on 1st November to 15th November. The crop should be left for seed yield after one cutting. For fresh forage yield, number of cuttings may be increased.
