ABSTRACT

A field experiment was conducted during (2009/2010) season in Demonstration Farm of the Faculty of Agricultural Studies, Sudan University of Science and Technology at Shambat, Sudan. The objective was to study the effect of fertilizers (urea, farmyard and chicken manure) on growth and yield of Rhodes grass. The fertilizer treatments used in this study were urea [U (100KgN/ha)], farmyard manure [FYM (5ton/ha)], chicken manure [ CHM (3ton/ha)], combinations between them (U+FYM, U+CHM, FYM+CHM, and U+FTM+CHM) with 8 cuts (Two months for the first cut and monthly after that to 8th cut). The experiment was laied out in Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with three replicates. The results revealed that growth parameters were not significantly affected by fertilizers except plant population but yield parameters were significantly affected by fertilizers.
