Consequently, ash content of the anaerobically digested rice straw will be greatly promoted compared with the original rice straw.
The increases in anaerobically digested organic wastes in the world created a greater attention to evaluate the impact of the residue on soil properties.
The experiment was carried out to investigate the effect of adding palm oil sludge in cattle diets on methane and volatile fatty acid production as well as on the microbial population of the manure when digested anaerobically. Four dietary treatments (T1, T2, T3 and T4) were formulated by the addition of palm oil sludge to a grass x legume silage at 0, 10, 20 and 30%, respectively.
