Nutrient Digestibility and Chemical Composition of Potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) Vine as Alternative Forage in Ruminant Diets

  title={Nutrient Digestibility and Chemical Composition of Potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) Vine as Alternative Forage in Ruminant Diets},
  author={Aleh and Alehi and Aman and Ashkari and {\AA}hman and Bne and bbasi and Amdollah and Amangar},
The present study was carried out to determine the chemical composition, mineral content, nutrient digestibility and metabolizable energy of potato vine. Besides that, chemical composition and nutrient digestibility of potato vine compared with alfalfa hay as reference forage in ruminant nutrition has been studied. The experiment was conducted in completely randomized design. Primarily apparent in vivo digestibility of alfalfa nutrients were obtained then digestibility of nutrients within…

Evaluating nutritional value of processed potato vines by in vitro gas production
Findings indicate the great potential of additive-treated potato vine silages to replace conventional fodder in the diets of ruminants.
Determining the ensiling characteristics of potato vine silage supplemented with rice bran and corn and evaluating their ruminal fermentation potential in vitro
It is indicated that rice bran and corn improved ensiling fermentation characteristics of potato vines, and that additive-treated potato vine silage had no adverse effects on rumen fermentation and could improve the energy and N utilisation and alleviate the methane pollution of the rumen compared with whole corn silage.

The objectives of this research were to evaluate the effects of raw material moisture content and additives on the fermentation quality and degradation of glycoalkaloids in potato vine silage and to
Nutritional values of available ruminant feed resources in smallholder dairy farms in Rwanda
Evaluated nutritional quality of feed types that farmers use in different agro-ecological zones of Rwanda showed that only five out of 24 feed types were common in both districts, suggesting that a common feed composition table can be used as a component of the decision support tool for rational feed resource development and utilisation in the smallholder farms in the selected agro -ecologies of Rwanda.
Introduce Sweet Potato Vines as Good Roughage for Small Ruminants
In order to introduce the sweet potato vines (SPV) as good roughage for small ruminants, three treatments (sun dried, silage with or without inoculants, 11C33) were carried out to come over their
Solid-state fermentation of co-products from palm oil processing: Production of lipase and xylanase and effects on chemical composition
Abstract The palm oil industry generates large amounts of lignocellulosic co-products. Palm kernel cake (PKC) and palm pressed fibre (PPF) have nutritional limitations as ingredients in animal feed,

Effect of feeding napier grass, lucerne and sweet potato vines as sole diets to dairy heifers on nutrient intake, weight gain and rumen degradation.
It was concluded from the study that NG, L and SPV contained nutrient levels that would sustain acceptable growth in heifers.
A note on a comparison of the feeding value of sweet potato vines and lucerne meal for broiler chickens
The chemical composition of sun-dried sweet potato vines (SPV) and lucerne meal showed high levels (g/kg DM) of neutral detergent ®bre, ash and protein of 364 and 352, 178 and 100, and 191 and 182,
Nutrient digestibility and evaluation of protein and carbohydrate fractionation of citrus by-products.
It could be concluded that citrus by-products have high nutritive value and also, the in vitro techniques can be easily used to determine of the nutritivevalue of citrus by -products.
Qualitative characteristics, microbial populations and nutritive values of orange pulp ensiled with nitrogen supplementation.
Both nitrogen sources used in this study enhanced nutritive value of high-moisture orange pulp silage and may be applied as a practical approach for long-term preservation of fresh orange pulp.
Effects of graded levels of potato by-products in barley- and corn-based beef feedlot diets: I. Feedlot performance, carcass traits, meat composition, and appearance.
Results indicate that these diets had minimal effects on beef appearance and carcass characteristics, meat composition, and water retention properties, and differences were small and probably not biologically important.
Supplementing Guinea grass with fresh sweet potato foliage for milk production by Bunaji and N'Dama cows in early lactation
The metabolisable energy (ME) intakes were higher for Diet D although, it recorded the least efficiency of ME utilization for milk production, and milk yields were significantly higher than other diets.
Methods for dietary fiber, neutral detergent fiber, and nonstarch polysaccharides in relation to animal nutrition.
In addition to NDF, new improved methods for total dietary fiber and nonstarch polysaccharides including pectin and beta-glucans now are available and are also of interest in rumen fermentation.
Effect of harvesting interval and defoliation on yield and chemical composition of leaves, stems and tubers of sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas L. (Lam.)) plant parts
The leaf, stem and tuber DM yields and leaf to stem proportion of sweet potato vines varied between varieties and between planting seasons, and the tuber DM yield was higher in the local variety, TQ1, K51 and KB1 than in the other varieties.
Fodder and tuber yields, and fodder quality of sweet potato cultivars at different maturity stages in the West African humid forest and savanna zones
A 2-year study was conducted in the West African humid forest and southern Guinea savanna zones to determine fodder and tuber yields, fodder crude protein (CP) and neutral detergent fibre
