Abstract

This experiment was conducted to estimate the yield and nutritive value of common roadside grasses available in Bangladesh. A land was developed as an experimental plot and made for growing roadside grasses and was partitioned into four quarters each of 200 sq.m. Pasture was established as a grazing land. The average herbage yield (DM and OM) recorded in the month of November was significantly (P<0.05) higher than that of August, September or February. The fresh yield (P<0.05) and CP yield of Phaseolus mungo were significantly higher than that of other grass species. The OM content of Imperata cylindrica was significantly (P<0.05) than other grasses. The DM content of Cynodon dactylon and Imperata cylindrica, NDF content of Cynodon dactylon and CP content of Phaseolus mungo were significantly (P<0.01) higher than other grass species.
