Changes in chemical composition and in sacco degradability of wheat straw treated with Pleurotus sajorcaju and P. ostreatus



Changes in chemical composition and in sacco degradability of wheat straw treated with Pleurotus sajorcaju and P. ostreatus



International Journal of Animal Sciences 14(1): 61-67



Two strains of white rot fungi, P. sajor-caju and P. ostreatus, were grown on moist wheat straw to study their efficiency in degrading lignin and ability to cause an increase in the in sacco degradability of wheat straw. Fungi were grown on wheat straw andanalysed after incubation periods of 0, 5, 10, 15, 20, 30 and 40 days at 80% moisture at 25 degrees C. The nylon bag method (using a buffalo) was used to assess rumen degradability of the samples.
