General information about seeds
The 4G Bullet Super Napier is an exotic Napier grass species. Is from Pakchang Thailand. In Thailand, this grass is known as Pakchag-1. This grass has no thorns or thistles. These grasses have a protein content of 15% to 18%. From this grass we can make silage. Once planted, continuous fodder is available for 7 to 8 years. The growth of this grass is the fastest. It can grow up to 16 to 17 feet in height, but it is advisable to harvest it when it is 10 to 12 feet high. This grass is harvested 5 to 6 times a year.
Land and preparation for planting
4G Bullet Super Napier can be taken in different soils. These crops are grown in a wide variety of soils, from moderate, sandy soils to black loamy soils. Heavy soils are very useful for this crop and well drained soils are required. Once sown, the crop stays in the same soil for 6 to 7 years, so pre-cultivation is very important. For this, if deep plowing is more in depth, break it up and apply 8 to 10 tons of fully decomposed manure per acre in medium to light soil before planting cane in vertical-horizontal plowing.
Before planting, the stalks should be soaked for 10 to 15 minutes in a large pot using 2 ml germinator per 1 liter of water.
Planting period and method of cultivation
4G Bullet Super Napier grass can be planted anytime of the year. 4G bullets require 12000 sticks per acre. 4G Bullet Super Napier grass should be planted 3 feet in a row with spacing of 1 foot between two canes. The cane should be placed horizontally half an inch deep in the sari. Watering should be done immediately after planting and also after 4 days.
Fertilizer and water planning
Irrigate immediately after planting, then at intervals of 3 to 4 days, then irrigate as per soil requirements. Initially you would have applied manure but since you harvest this grass frequently you will need D.A.P, 10.26.26 after each harvest. Granular chemical fertilizers should be used. If you have an abundance of lentil manure, well-rotted cow-buffalo manure will do well.
Harvesting / production / use
The first harvest should be done 80 to 90 days after planting and the second and subsequent harvests should be done at intervals of 60 to 65 days. Always keep it close to the ground while harvesting. 4G Bullet Super Napier grass is used for animal feed. Also, all kinds of animals love to eat this fodder. Normally 5 to 6 cuttings of this fodder are done in a year. Each harvest can yield 40 to 50 tons of green fodder per 1 acre of land. We can get 150 to 200 tons of fodder in a year. We can make silage as required. Climate, land and water changes can cause early or late harvest. The growth of this grass is less on cold days.
