Effect of alkali treatment on the in vitro digestibility and chemical composition of fibrous agricultural residues


, : Effect of alkali treatment on the in vitro digestibility and chemical composition of fibrous agricultural residues. Tropical Animal Production 10(1): 58-67

Saccharum officinarum (a) bagasse pith, (b) bagasse, (c) bagasse pith + 25% molasses, (d) bagasse + 40% molasses, (e) sorghum straw, (f) maize cobs, (g) Paspalum fasciculatum aboveground plant parts, (h) Digitaria decumbens hay and (i) Rhynchelytrum roseum were treated with 0, 20, 40, 60 or 80 g NaOH/kg DM for 24 h. In a 2nd experiment maize cobs were milled and treated with 60 g/kg DM of NaOH, NH4OH or Ca(OH)2 alone or in combination.
