Associative effect of NaOH and steam pressure treatment on chemical composition of rice straw and its fibre digestibility in rumen



Associative effect of NaOH and steam pressure treatment on chemical composition of rice straw and its fibre digestibility in rumen



Indian Journal of Animal Nutrition 4(1): 5-11



Rice straw (RS) was treated with sodium hydroxide at 0, 3, 5, 7, 9 and 12% (w/w) and steam pressure treatment (SPT) at 2 kg/cmsuperscript 2 for 1 and 2 h. Due to synergistic effect of the treatments, there was significant solubilization of structural polysaccharides including cell wall, acid detergent fibre (ADF), hemicellulose, cellulose and silica resulting in increased (P <0.01) values of cell contents. The ash and lignin content in treated RS also increased (P <0.01).
