Chemical and nutrient composition of water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes) and duck weed (Lemna minor) grown on partly treated liquid refuse from pig houses


, : Chemical and nutrient composition of water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes) and duck weed (Lemna minor) grown on partly treated liquid refuse from pig houses. Annali della Facolta di Medicina Veterinaria di Parma 1: 198-216

Composition of water hyacinth and duckweed grown in ditches on liquid pig manure subjected to anaerobic digestion to produce biogas was, protein 26.68 and 29.58, fats 4.28 and 5.99, crude fibre 17.38 and 9.74, nitrogen-free extract 38.69 and 37.67, and ash 12.97 and 17.02%, respectively. Biological value of protein was 57.62 and 58.86.
