- IGFRI-5 : It is suitable for cultivation in areas of sub-montane and low hill sub-tropical zone of H.P. which are below 800 m under rainfed and irrigated conditions and fertile as well as marginal lands. It is a very vigorous and tall growing hybrid. Its fillers ar thin. It has erect growth habit, very leafy (14-15 leaves/filler), no hairs on nodes, stems remain soft upto full growth. It is ready for harvest after 60 days of transplanting. It gives fresh fodder and dry matter yield of 1143 q/ha and 372 q/ha respectively. On an average, it contains 6.35% crude protein and 2.8% oxalate. 3-4 cuttings can be obtained under rainfed conditions.
- NB-37 : It is a dwarf hybrid suitable for sub-tropic pastures. It is drought tolerant and has low oxalates (2-3%) and high crude protein (9-10%).
- NB-21: It is a fast growing variety with high tillering capacity. Stems are thin and non-hairy with long, smooth and narrow leaves. Oxalic acid content is this variety is comparatively lesser than in other varieties but it has become susceptible to diseases and IGFRI-10 have been identified to replace NB-21 upto 1300 m elevation.
