A field experiment was conducted during rabi 2005-06 at Adaptive Trial Centre, Tabiji, Ajmer (Rajasthan), to study the effect of nutrient management on green forage yield, dry matter and crude protein yield of oats. fodder, dry matter and crude protein yield of oat was significant. Application of 100 % RDF along with 5 t/ha vermi-compost (T3), being at par with 100% RDF alone (T1) and 100% or 75 % RDF with organics (T2, T4 & T5,) produced significantly higher green fodder over organics only (T6 & T7).
