Performance of 10 sorghum cultivars (CSH13, CSH14, CSH16, CSH25, CSH30, CSV15, CSV20, CSV23, CSV27 and SPV462) for nutrient composition and nutrient uptake was determined under two dates of sowing (16 February and 3 March) at ICAR Research Complex for Eastern Region Patna, during summer season of 2015 and 2016. Study revealed that difference in sowing dates did not influence the nutrient contents (N, P, K, S, Zn, Fe and Cu) of grain of sorghum. But in case of stover, K, Zn and Cu content did… CONTINUE READING
