Abstract:
The present study (Front Line Demonstration) was conducted in promotion of the super Napier fodder as a perennial multi-cut fodder variety which aided in year-round fodder availability to the milch animals. The demonstration has been carried out by selecting 10 farmers from the KVK adopted villages for the period of 3 years i.e. 2020-2023 where each farmer was distributed with 10,000 no. super Napier fodder slips for cultivation. The demonstration resulted in benefiting the farmers with an additional source of income generation of 30,000/-(4 farmers), 25,000/-(3 farmers) & 20,000 (3 farmers) by the sale of the slips in addition to the extension of the fodder area cultivation for feeding to animals. The study also depicted with the production of good quality and quantity of milk and maintenance of good animal health conditions by feeding of super Napier in the treatment group when compared to the control group where routine feeding practice was with locally available fodder Jowar (CSH-31) to milch animals.
