  • The objective of this study was to utilize the invasive aquatic weed, Salvinia molesta as an unconventional and alternative plant protein source in the broiler feeding operation. A total of 100, 15 days of age Lohman strain broilers with initial mean body weight of ±773.83 g were used in this experiment. The experimental design was Completely Randomized Design (CRD) with 4 dietary treatments consisted of Salvinia molesta meal as follows; T0 (control diet), T1 (diet with 6% Salvinia molesta), T2… CONTINUE READING
