A study was conducted in the valley of Chagharzai in Bunair district lying in the north Trans- Himalayan moist zone occupying Malakand Division, North Western Frontier Province (NWFP), Pakistan to determine the nutritive value of locally available marginal land grasses. The study area lies between 34.42 to 34.66 o latitude and 72.62 to 72.78 o longitude, having a humid subtropical to temperate environment. The annual precipitation varies from 600 to 1000 mm, mainly during summer and spring… Expand

MINERAL COMPOSITION, PALATABILITY AND DIGESTIBILITY OF FREE RANGELAND GRASSES OF NORTHERN GRASSLANDS OF PAKISTAN
A study was conducted in the valley of Chagharzai in Bunair district lying in the north Trans- Himalayan moist zone occupying Malakand Division, North Western Frontier Province (NWFP), Pakistan toExpand
Nutritional evaluation of some forage plants from Harboi rangeland, Kalat, Pakistan.
TLDR
It is concluded that the poor livestock productivity in Harboi rangeland is partially due to insufficient amount of available poor quality forage that requires attention of the range mangers to improve the habitat and livestock breeds. Expand
NUTRITIONAL EVALUATION OF MAIZE PLANT FODDER GROWN IN SPRING AND AUTUMN SEASON IN PUNJAB, PAKISTAN
TLDR
It was noticed that during spring season the values of dry matter, neutral detergent fiber (NDF), acid detergent Fiber (ADF) and starch were significantly higher than autumn season values, and crude protein (CP) was higher in maize grown in autumn season. Expand
HERBAGE PRODUCTION AND NUTRITIVE VALUE OF ALPINE PASTURES IN UPPER KAGHAN VALLEY, KHYBER PAKHTUNKHAWA, PAKISTAN
Grasses, forbs and shrubs of alpine pastures harvested at three different intervals from four different altitudinal zones (2925-4184 m), Basel, Jalkhad, Gittidas and Burawai in upper Kaghan valley,Expand
Evaluation of the relative feed value of indigenous savanna forage shrub species in Ghana
TLDR
All the species studied offered considerable potential as high quality forage for ruminants during the acute periods of the year when the quantity and quality of forages are limited. Expand
Mineral Contents of Weed Crops In Central Anatolian Region
TLDR
Results indicated that weed plants of Central Anatolia were rich in trace elements and there was no need for supplemental trace elements. Expand
Macro-mineral contents in ten species at three phenological stages in Tehsil Takht-e-Nasrati, District Karak, Pakistan
TLDR
It is concluded that macro-minerals concentrations available in these forage plants to the grazing livestock were very low, hence this may be one of the causes responsible for the pitiable health and productivity of the grazing animals in investigated area. Expand
THE CHEMICAL COMPOSITION AND NUTRITIVE VALUE OF Brachiaria GRASS CULTIVARS AT KATUMANI DRYLAND RESEARCH STATION IN SOUTH EASTERN KENYA
TLDR
Brachiaria grasses can be a good source of forage for livestock and a boost to the forage resource base in the semi arid regions of Kenya and further research is needed to quantify their productivity in both dry and wet periods. Expand
Nutrietive evaulation and in-situ digestibility of irrigated grasses.
The study aimed to determine the nutritive value of Cenchrus ciliaris, Leptochloa fusca, Chloris gayana, Cynodon dactylon and Panicum colunumgrasses for ruminants. Five samples of each grass wereExpand
Cynodon dactylon: An efficient perennial grass to revegetate sodic lands
Abstract Sodic soils are wide-spread in semi-arid subtropical regions and characterized by high level of sodium and pH with poor physical, microbial and enzyme activities. In this study frequencyExpand

SOIL AND FORAGE MINERAL (TRACE ELEMENTS) STATUS OF A GRAZING PASTURE IN THE SEMIARID REGION OF PAKISTAN
A study was conducted to determine the trace mineral status of forage and soils on a goat ranch in the semi-arid region of south western Punjab, Pakistan. Forage and soil samples were collected twiceExpand
Chemical Composition And in vitro Dry Matter Digestibility of Certain Tree Leaves
Chemical composition and in vitro dry matter digestibility (IVDMD) of Pongamia glabra, Ficus religiosa, Ficus bengalensis, Eugenia jambolana, Molus indica, Ficus glomerata, Zizyplms nummularia,Expand
In Vitro Digestion Kinetics and Quality of Perennial Grasses as Influenced by Forage Maturity
TLDR
Magnitude and speed of quality decline with maturity were more important than species differences in determination of digestion kinetics of perennial grasses. Expand
Variations in chemical composition associated with tissue aging in palatable and unpalatable grasses native to central Argentina
TLDR
The results suggest that the relatively high nutritive value of the unpalatable species at early plant growth stages following burning may create a window of time, in which it may be more readily grazed by livestock. Expand
In Vitro Digestion Kinetics of Temperate Perennial Forage Legume and Grass Stems
TLDR
Results of this study suggest that selecting for low NBO:lignin ratio and low p-courmaric acid concentration will reduce the inhibitory influence of lignin on digestive kinetics. Expand
LIGNIFICATION AND IN VITRO CELL WALL DIGESTIBILITY OF PLANT PARTS
TLDR
In grasses, the relationship between lignin in cell walls and cell wall digestibility was linear, however, cell wall Digestibility of legumes and Russian comfrey was not as low as expect... Expand
Alfalfa Morphological Stage and its Relation to in Situ Digestibility of Detergent Fiber Fractions of Stems
TLDR
The data demonstrated a close association between in situ digestibility of detergent-fiber fractions and the Cornell index and further supports its utility. Expand
Alkali-Labile Cell-Wall Phenolics and Forage Quality in Switchgrasses selected for Differing Digestibility
TLDR
Results were consistent with both grazed and ungrazed switchgrass and indicate that alkali-labile cell-wall phenolic composition in switchgrass is heritable and genetically correlated to IVDMD. Expand
Factors affecting diet selection by sheep. 2. Height and density of pasture
TLDR
When two pastures with different sward characteristics were offered together, sheep generally preferred the one they could eat faster, and intake rate was several-fold greater when sheep grazed tall, sparse pastures than short, dense pastures. Expand
Structural anti-quality characteristics of range and pasture plants.
TLDR
Because structural anti-quality may actually promote sustainability of grazing systems by preventing severe defoliation, or by providing refuges for highly desirable forages, it may not be desirable to completely counteract their effects. Expand
