Weight and chemical composition of the plant parts of enset (Ensete ventricosum) and the intake and degradability of enset by cattle

Weight and chemical composition of the plant parts of enset (Ensete ventricosum) and the intake and degradability of enset by cattle

Livestock Production Science 49(3): 249-257

Three varieties of E. ventricosum, Agade, Badedat and Lemat, were collected in the Guraghe zone in Ethiopia. The plant parts (leaf lamina, leaf midribs, pseudostem sheath, pseudostem core and corm) were separated, weighed and analysed. Dried samples were analysed for DM, total ash, CP, NDF, ADF and lignin.
