The ample provision of quality fodder is essential for sustainable dairy industry. The development of oat varieties possessing higher forage yield potential will help to produce abundant quantities of fodder for cattle. For this purpose, an experiment was conducted to compare the forage yield of twelve oat (Avena sativa L.) varieties at Agricultural Research Station, Bahawa lpur, Pakistan, during the year 2012-2013. Randomized Complete Block Design was used for the layout of the e xperiment…

Performance Evaluation of Improved Oat Varieties/Accessions at East Guji Zone, Oromia, Ethiopia
It is concluded that the oat varieties/ accessions 79Ab382 (TX) 80SA95, CI-8235 and Bonsa were found a promising in terms of grain yield, green fodder yield, absence of lodge and diseases resistance than others that could be demonstrated and popularized as an alternative feed resources under smallholder conditions.
Evaluating oat cultivars for dairy forage production in the central Kenyan highlands
Conway and Glamis stand a high chance of improving forage production in the area and other similar systems based on DM and CP production, and farmers’ choice.
Yield and Nutritional Quality of Sweet Lupine (Lupinus angustifolius) Grown in Midaltitudes of Lemo District, Hadiya Zone, Southern Ethiopia
The overall result of this study suggested that green forage yield and forage dry matter yield are affected by location, planting spacing, and stage of flowering, whereas the chemical composition of sweet lupine forage was affected by locations and variety interaction.
Dry Matter Yield and Nutritional Value of Desho and Setaria Grasses Mixed With Greenleaf Desmodium at Different Harvesting Times
The experiment was conducted to evaluate Dry matter yield and nutritional value of Desho and Setaria grasses mix with Greenleaf Desmodium at different harvesting times. The experiment was conducted
Impact of lime and NPK fertilizers on yield and quality of oats on pseudogley soil and their valorisation
In order to determine the effect of fertilization, environment, and their interactions on the yield and oats yield components. Five fertilization treatments (T1-control, T2-80 kg N ha-1, T3-120 kg N
Agronomic Performance and Dry Matter Yield of Desho (Pennisetum Pedicellatum) and Setaria (Setaria Sphacelata) Grasses Mixed with Greenleaf Desmodium (Desmodium Intortum) at Different Harvesting Time
Ethiopia has large livestock population in Africa possessing 60.39 million Cattle, 31.30 million sheep, 32.74 million goats, 2.01 million horses, 8.85 million donkeys, 0.46 million mules, camels 1.42


New exotic oats cultivar NZ0034 with medium plant height, more number of leaves, number of tillers per plant, and medium leaf area produced higher green fodder and dry matter yields than other varieties and could be used in breeding programmes to improve low yielding out-moded stock and develop high fodder yielding varieties of oats.
The analysis of adaptation in a plant-breeding programme
Varieties from particular geographic regions of the world showed a similarity in type of adaptation, which provides a useful basis for plant introduction and breeding.
