A MULTICUT fodder sorghum variety `COFS 29' was released by the Department of Forage Crops, Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore. Being multicut variety, one can harvest 5-6 crops in one year at 60 days intervals.
As the crop has leaves and the stem is highly succulent in nature, the green fodder is highly relished by cattle. It contains high protein and less crude fibre and hence higher digestibility. Special features of sorghum COFS 29 are:
Multicut (5-6 cuts/year) variety, Profuse tillering (10-15/plant), More number of leaves, Highly palatable, High crude protein (8.41 per cent),Less crude fibre (34.0 per cent).
