Chemical composition of maize stover, rice straw and wheat straw treated with sodium hydroxide (NaOH)


Utilization of low quality roughages in Africa [Kategile, JA; Said, AN; Sundstol, F Editors]: 17-20
Chemical composition of maize stover, rice straw and wheat straw treated with sodium hydroxide (NaOH)
Chemical composition of NaOH-treated and untreated maize stover and rice and wheat straw and cell wall constituents as influenced by conc. of NaOH treatment are tabulated. Ash content increased when maize and wheat were treated with 8% NaOH but ash content in rice decreased. Soluble nutrients and CP content of crop residues were significantly reduced by alkali treatment but CF gave an apparent increase, possibly as a reflection of soluble OM loss.
