Effect of Cutting Management on Growth and Yield of Sabai Grass (Eulaliopsis binata): Intercropped with Horticultural Plants under Acid Lateritic Soils of India

Manisha Basu, P.B.S. Bhadoria and S.C. Mahapatra

Abstract:
A field experiment was carried for two years to find out the effect of cutting management, on growth, yield of sabai grass and the suitability of sabai grass cultivation in association with different horticultural plants in acid lateritic fallow lands under rainfed condition. The performance of sabai grass was studied in association with four horticultural plants viz., drumstick (Moringa oleifera), pomegranate (Punica granatum), ber (Zizyphus jujuba) and sapota (Pouteria sapota) under two cutting management viz., one cut during November and two cuts during November and March. It was found that growth parameters like leaf length, canopy coverage and number of tillers per clump of sabai grass were superior in two cuts management as compared to one cut management in both the years. Two cuts management recorded 29.6 and 33.4% higher dry leaf yield as compared to one cut management in the first year and second year respectively. Among the four horticultural plants, the superiority of performance of intercropped sabai grass was in the order of sapota, pomegranate, ber and drumstick.
