Abstract


A field experiment entitled irrigation and tillage practices for fodder maize (Zea mays L.) in rice fallows was undertaken at the Department of Agronomy, College of Horticulture, Kerala Agricultural University conducted during 2012-2013. The treatments comprised of no irrigation (with residual moisture), irrigation at IW/CPE: 0.4, irrigation at IW/CPE: 0.7, irrigation at IW/CPE: 1.0 in main plots and zero tillage (with herbicide), minimum tillage and conventional tillage in sub plots. The experiment conducted showed that green fodder yield was highest under irrigation at IW/CPE: 1.0 and zero tillage (with herbicide). B: C ratio also followed the similar trend as yield.
