The hybrid Napier for fodder is highly valued for its abundant herbage yield, palatability and good herbage quality. It contains 8.7-10.2% CP, 28-30.5% crude fibre and 10-11.5% ash on dry matter basis. It provides nutritious and palatable fodder all the year round. It grows faster and produces more herbage and the stems are hard. It is triploid grass and thus does not produce seeds. The oxalate contain of some of the varieties may be high (> 3%). It can be mitigated if harvested at longer intervals (45-60 days). The grass is ideal for green fodder, silage and hay. Legumes fodder may be mixed with grass in the ratio of 1:2 to produce balanced silage. A combination of napier grass with berseem, lucerne or cowpea provide good quality palatable fodder for cattle. It is considered as a soil restoring crop also as grass leaves the soil richer in organic matter.
