oa Agroanimalia - Effect of nitrate and non-protein organic nitrogen levels in kikuyu (Pennisetum clandestinum) pastures on digestibility in vitro

Volume 12, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0302-7104



Considerable amounts of non-protein nitrogenous substances accumulate in kikuyu grass after nitrogen fertilization in autumn. Digestibility in vitro showed that large non-protein organic nitrogen fractions in kikuyu apparently do not affect digestibility, while less than I,D mg of nitrate nitrogen per gram stimulates digestion.
