Abstract: 

This research was performed, in order to study effects of treated wastewater, with complete fertilizer sprayed on some forage quatity and quality criteria of foxtail millet (Setaria italica). A split plot experiment based on randomized complete block design with three replications was carried out at the Agriculture Institute of Zabol University in year 2009. Treatments included three levels of irrigation: irrigation with tap water at all stages of grow (control), irrigation with wastewater and tap water alternately, irrigation with wastewater for all growing stages, as the main plot and sprayed with three levels of complete fertilizer: non spraying (control), Sprayed with 600 gram of complete fertilizer in per hectare, sprayed with 1200 gram of complete fertilizer in per hectare, as were the subplots. Traits evaluated were: forage yield and forage quality characteristics such as cell wall (NDF), cell wall without hemicelluloses (ADF), lignin (ADL), ash (ASH), crude protein (CP), water soluble carbohydrates (WSC) and dry matter digestibility (DMD). According to the results, irrigation with wastewater and sprayed fertilizer showed a significant effect on yield and forage quality characteristics. Among the irrigation treatments, irrigation with wastewater for all growing stages caused an increase of forage yield and quality characteristics such as soluble carbohydrate, crude protein, ash, dry matter digestibility and significant decrease of cell wall, cell wall without hemicelluloses and lignin. Also application at 1200 grams of fertilizer sprayed had maximum forage yield and dry matter digestibility in comparison with sprayed with 600 gram of complete fertilizer and control treatments.
