Chemical composition and nutritive value of horsegram, (Dolichos biflorus)



Chemical composition and nutritive value of horsegram, (Dolichos biflorus)



Mysore Journal of Agricultural Sciences 13(2): 198-201



In DM of horsegram (Dolichos biflorus) crude protein was 24.89, ether extract 1.32, crude fibre 5.69, N-free extract 62.69, ash 5.41, Ca 0.27, P 0.24 and Mg 0.19%. Six adult bullocks were each given 2.5 g horsegram and ragi straw to appetite daily for 30 days. Average intake of total DM was 1.70 kg/100 kg liveweight and average gain was 16.3 kg. Average daily retention of N was 17.1, Ca 7.1, P 1.1 and Mg 1.2 g.
