Abstract

Effect of different treatments on production potential, quality and carrying capacity of improved grassland vis-a-vis silvipastoral system was studied. Introduction of Setaria anceps (setaria), setaria + Macroptillum atropurpureum (siratro) in native vegetation as well as in between hedgerows of Robinia pseudoacacia (Robinia) proved equally effective in relation to production. However, from over all quality point of view the letter one found better over all other treatments. All setaria introduced treatments benefits the farmers to carry almost three times more livestock with them.
