Abstract

The observed results revealed that the total area available for grazing accounts for about 40% of the geographical area of India. Further in eight states, over 50% area is utilized for grazing. However, grazing area is much higher i.e. over 70% in the states of Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, Uttar Pradesh, Uttaranchal, Meghalaya, Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh. The introduction of clover (Berseem) in India after independence could found place in assured supply of moisture, in rabi season. The medium size of land holdings were found more concern about knowledge level of farmer and farm women on fodder for livestock and grassland in India.
