Nitrogen retention and chemical composition of urea treated wheat straw ensiled with organic acids or fermentable carbohydrates



Nitrogen retention and chemical composition of urea treated wheat straw ensiled with organic acids or fermentable carbohydrates



Asian Australasian Journal of Animal Sciences 16(11): 1583-1592



The influence of varying levels of urea and additives on nitrogen (N) retention and chemical composition of wheat straw was studied. The wheat straw was treated with 4, 6 and 8% urea and ensiled with 1.5, 2 and 2.5% of acetic or formic acid and 2, 4 and 6% of maize steep liquor (CSL) or acidified molasses for 15 days. The N content of wheat straw was significantly different across all treatments. The N content of urea-treated wheat straw was increased with the increasing level of urea.
