Determining the Nutritional Value of Fodder Tree Leaves and Shrubs of Scarcity Zone of Maharashtra

September 10, 2021 Biological Science 0

The purpose of this research was to examine the nutritional value of fodder tree leaves and shrubs collected from a dryland area in Maharashtra’s Solapur district. This region’s climate is defined by a low annual rainfall (594.8 mm), which varies from year to year and ranges from 594.8 to 655.6 mm. The average temperature in the winter is 22.5°C, and the average temperature in the summer is 40.1°C. The average annual total evaporation is 2817.7 mm. In the leaves of fodder trees and shrubs, dry matter (DM), organic matter (OM), ash, crude protein (CP), neutral detergent fibre (NDF), acid detergent fibre (ADF), hemicelluloses, and proximate composition were examined. The mean percent values for DM, CF, CP, NDF, ADF, and hemicelluloses were 32.66, 22.60, 4.79, 55.75, 47.97, and 7.81 percent, respectively. In fodder tree leaves and shrubs, the average percentages of ash, calcium, and phosphorus were 8.28, 2.18, and 0.235, respectively. Iron, zinc, and manganese concentrations were 3419, 51, and 252 g g-1, respectively.
