Abstract

While maize and fodder sorghums are recommended for green fodder in dairying areas, the most suitable plants for summer grazing are Sudan grass and Japanese millet. Both can be sown on the majority of soils occurring in the dairying areas, providing ploughing is commenced sufficiently early in the spring. If sown in October or November, either of these plants will provide grazing for stock during January and February and if soil moisture supplies are adequate, will continue growth during March and April.
