• For irrigated grasses (Bajra Napier grass, guinea grass, buffalo grass, Teosinte and Deenanath), life irrigation must be given on 3rd day after sowing/planting. Thereafter depending on the soil and climatic conditions, irrigation must be given once in 7-10 days.
  • If there is a moisture stress due to some unexpected reasons, it will be ultimately reflecting on the yield.
  • Under rainfed condition compartmental bunding can be followed for better harvest of rain water.
  • If there is excess moisture/water, it has to be drained out. Water logging for more than 3 days may affect the growth of certain grasses such as Cenchrus sp. Panicum maximum, P. antidotale etc.
