Abstract:
An experiment was conducted to ascertain the feasibility of green fodder harvest without affecting the seed yield of transplant aman rice. Plant height, number of leaves hill-1, number of tillers hill-1, green fodder yield and seed yield were significantly differed due to different cultivar and leaf clipping height. Latishail produced the highest plant height, number of leaves hill-1 and number of tillers hill-1 at all growth stages where BR10 showed the lowest among cultivars. The green fodder yield was also obtained highest (1.98 t ha-1) from latishail, which was statistically identical with BR10 and BR11. The highest seed yield (4.23 t ha-1) was obtained from BR11, which was followed by BR10 (4.01 t ha-1). The highest value of all parameters except seed yield were obtained from control plot at all growth stage where the lowest were recorded from clopping at 10 cm height. The plants clipped at 20 cm height, produced an average green fodder yield in addition to higher seed yield which was statistically similar to control. So it is possible to get green fodder by leaf clipping without seriously affecting the rice seed yield.
