Forage Yield and Quality of Maize Varity


This study was conducted in gedarif research station farm for two seasons in 2011 and 2012. The objective was to find the relationship among genotypes yield from dry matter and rain fall amount and distribution. The results showed significant differences for the five types of maize at two parameters. This was indicated by number of leaves and dry weight. The results showed highly significant differences between the two species and the rest of the other on the both season 2011 and 2012. The study concluded that, maize varity and genotype can be used as indicators for plant yield and biomass as proved in the crop of the study. The study recommended that varity Hudiba I and Hudiba 2 can be used as practical mean to assess utilization level as expressed by growth performance indicators including dry matter and biomass from maize varity forage crop.
