Abstract
A field experiment was conducted under irrigated condition during the kharif season to
study the effect of stage of harvesting of seed crop, nitrogen and phosphorus levels on the
forage yield and ratoon performance of forage pearl millet. Application of 120 kg nitrogen and
60 kg phosphorus gave higher forage yields. Application of higher dose of phosphorus resulted
in better ratoon performance. Cutting ratoon bajra at flowering stage was found to be ideal for
better ratoon forage yield.
