The crop is ready for harvest at silk stage for fodder purpose, which continues up to milk stage.
The early harvesting though produce good quality fodder but yield is reduced.
In case of late harvesting, the fodder quality is impaired
Sorghum yields around 160-200 quintals of green fodder per acre during rainy season and 100-120 quintals of fodder per acre during summer season.
Palatability increases as hard stems when fermented into silage become soft and better utilized by the dairy animals.
