Productivity of Forage Crop Maize under Different Cultivation Practices
Abstract: Maize (Zea mays. L. ) belongs to family is one of the important forage crop used in Marathwada. During the piece of work the effect of different cultivation methods on growth performance of forage crop Maize was studied. Cultivation practices utilized were Mulching, Raised bed, Shed nets, Ridges and furrows along with control. These four treatments were carried out along with three replicates. Mulching produced the tallest plant, along with highest number of leaves per plant. These plants were emerged out early with 100 % rate of seed germination. Control showed poor performance. Thus it could be concluded that, mulching method is best for the production of forage crop maize in rain feed area of Marathwada.
