  4. 5. <ul><li>Highly palatable grass,with high dry matter content (15%-20%),free from all toxic principles. </li></ul><ul><li>Protein 6-8 percent, with well balanced calcium and phosphorus. </li></ul><ul><li>Good soil binder. </li></ul><ul><li>Harvest can be done once in 30-40 days. </li></ul><ul><li>Can be grazed,cut and fed used for hay silage </li></ul><ul><li>making.Ideal for sewage forming. </li></ul>

NAPIER GRASS <ul><li>Pennisetum purpureum(elephant grass) </li></ul><ul><li>Native of Zimbabwe in South Africa </li></ul><ul><li>It grows up to four meters with thick growth which gives its name “elephant grass”. </li></ul><ul><li>It is said to have been Introduced to india by about 1915 in Bombay. </li></ul><ul><li>Perennial grass,protien6-8%,good for hay making,comes up well in sewage water. </li></ul>

CUMBU NAPIER HYBRID <ul><li>(Bajra x Napier)-BN hybrid </li></ul><ul><li>(Napier x Bajra)- NB hybrid </li></ul><ul><li>Cumbu Napier hybrid was the first hybrid,which </li></ul><ul><li>was produced at Coimbatore followed by Pusa </li></ul><ul><li>Gaint Napier at New Delhi further improved types </li></ul><ul><li>In other states. </li></ul><ul><li>Propagated by root slips or stem cutting are very </li></ul><ul><li>vigorous in their growth and highly adaptable. </li></ul><ul><li>High yielders, nutritious, palatable, succulent, </li></ul><ul><li>juicy,Less fibrous fodder. Protien 8-10%. </li></ul>
  7. 10. <ul><li>Rich in protien,can be fed to animals in small </li></ul><ul><li>quantity(2 to 5 kg/day depending on body weight). </li></ul><ul><li>Rich in vitamins.Easily digestable and highly </li></ul><ul><li>palatable.Combines well with other grasses in </li></ul><ul><li>mixed or intercropping conditions so a balanced </li></ul><ul><li>diet is made. </li></ul>
