Fodder Yield and Quality of Four Cultivars of Maize (Zea mays L.) Under Different Methods of Sowing
M. Ayub, R. Ahmad, A. Tanveer and I. Ahmad

Abstract:
Response of maize (Zea mays L.) cultivars viz., Sadaf, Sultan, Sarhad White and Golden to two sowing methods, i.e., broadcast and line sowing was studied under field conditions. Significant differences were observed amongst the cultivars for plant height, leaf area per plant, stem diameter, fresh fodder yield and ether extractable fat percentage. Cultivar ‘Sultan’ proved superior to all other cultivars with respect to higher fodder yield of better quality. Plant population was significantly higher under line sowing where as fodder yield and all other yield parameters studied were not significantly affected by sowing methods.
