Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to study the influence of combinations of different fodder crops on growth and biomass yield under hydroponic condition at Agronomy field unit, Zonal Agricultural Research Station, Gandhi Krishi Vignana Kendra, University of Agricultural Sciences, Bangalore during the year 2018. The experiment was conducted with 13 treatment combinations involving maize, finger millet, little millet and cowpea at different proportions by using completely randomised design (CRD) and repeated three times. The results revealed that 100per cent Maize treatment recorded significantly higher shoot length (19.39 cm), root length (17.61 cm), seedling vigour index (3396), green biomass yield (14.10 kg m-2) compared to other treatments.
