Abstract

This experiment was carried out at the agricultural research station of King Abdul Aziz University in Hada al-Sham northeast of Jeddah to study the effect of irrigation with mixed sewage water from Makkah City treatment plant on growth components and fresh forage yield of Sudan grass during 2016 season. The experiment was carried out using the design of three random replications. The mixed water treatments are (100% normal water + zero sewage water, 75% normal water + 25% sewage water, 50% ordinary water + 50% sewage, 25% normal water + 75% sewage, 0% normal water + 100% sewage). The area was divided into three replicates each with 5 plots (5 x 5m) to represent irrigation treatments. Irrigation with 75% treated sewage water + 25% normal water and 50% treated sewage water + 50% normal water significantly enhanced and increased all studied growth components and forage yield of Sudan grass crop compared to other treatments, with no significant difference between them followed by 100% treated sewage water. Irrigation with 100% normal water gave the least means of the studied parameters. Irrigation with 75% treated sewage water + 25% normal water and 50% treated sewage water + 50% normal water can successfully be used in irrigating Sudan grass.
