Leucaena leucocephala: a new forage for farm animals in Egypt. 2. The chemical composition of leucaena leaves and mimosine detoxification at different stages of maturity


, : Leucaena leucocephala: a new forage for farm animals in Egypt. 2. The chemical composition of leucaena leaves and mimosine detoxification at different stages of maturity. Egyptian Journal of Animal Production 30(1): 83-91

Chemical composition of leucaena leaves was estimated at 4, 5, 6, 7, 9 and 12 months after planting. Crude fibre, ash and nitrogen-free extract increased gradually with age, whereas CP and ether extract contents were greater at the earlier growth stage. Phosphorus, iron, zinc, copper and manganese decreased gradually, and calcium, potassium, magnesium and sodium increased with age. Mimosine content declined with age and it also decreased as the temperature of drying was increased.
