Effect of different levels of moisture, alkali and urea treatments on the nutritive value of rice straw

Pakistan Veterinary Journal 12(3): 129-133
Effect of different levels of moisture, alkali and urea treatments on the nutritive value of rice straw
Rice straw was treated with 4, 5 and 6% urea and 4% alkali containing 3.5+or-0.5, 3.0+or-1.0 and 2.5+or-1.5% sodium hydroxide + calcium oxide, separately at 40, 50 and 60% moisture levels. Treatments were allowed to continue for 2 weeks under anaerobic conditions. The samples of treated straw were analysed for total nitrogen, total ash, organic matter (OM), crude fibre (CF) and oxalate. Digestible DM, digestible OM and digestible CF of treated straw were determined by the nylon bag technique.
