Demonstration on silage making under MGMG scheme 


‘Silage making’ is promising and economic option for providing nutrients through fodder during the dry season, especially, if prepared at community-level, where surplus fodder harvested in the wet season is processed and stored. In line of awareness campaigns run for improved buffalo husbandry practices for rearing buffaloes, farmers at village Ladwi, Distt Hisar were given demonstration on silage- making at their door under on-going MGMG programme at institute. Freshly harvested, chopped forage (oats) was used, compacted in a filled pit (size 5X3X2 ft), available at farmer’s door to demonstrate making silage. Silage pit was then covered with plastic and left to ferment for around 40 days. 





Future plans to show the quality of ready to feed silage and to establish more field demonstration in other villages for farmers to implement the technique. Also, it is an opportunity to practically test low-cost technologies for improving nutrition and productivity in fields, jointly by farmers, researchers and extensionists. It will certainly improve adoption of technology in other areas in the region that face similar constraints during the dry season. The program shall promote intensive exchange of information among farmers. This is leading to the consolidation of a critical level of expertise for animal production in the dry areas in this region.
