It should be mentioned that growth parameters were carried out for the cereal forage rather than the leguminous forage as the growth habit of the legume forage is different from that of the cereal forage which could make comparisons between the two forages, for growth parameters, of little use.
The addition of other feed ingredients such as rice bran or legume forage can be adjusted to the availability of materials on site.
To determine the phenolic compounds of the legume forage, the samples of peanut forage and red clover were partially dried, milled and stored for further analysis, as described by Makkar (2000).
Performance of mixture of Cereal and legume forage under irrigation in the Sudan.
For the horse market, the primary legume forage is alfalfa and occasionally clover.
Conversely, a greater %ss, as found with the legume forage, suggests less impact from soil sealing and crusting.
SEQ and WPQ would resemble beans and whole pods of tropical legumes as similar trends have been observed for example with Mucuna pruriens (Sandoval-Castro et al., 2003) or the improved efficiency obtained when legume forage is mixed with an energy source (Estrada-Lievano et al., 2009, Sandoval Castro et al., 2002) and ii) reduction of methanogenic archaea and protozoan of rumen (Jayanegara et al., 2012) possibly due to the saponin content of quinoa.
(2007) on Niger forage, the OM degradability is quite low in legume forage compared to grass (mean values: 56.5% vs 68.4%, respectively), probably due to the high lignin content (mean values: 15.21% vs 10.77% DM, respectively) especially in some samples (Cajanus, Chamaecrista, Mucuna, Stylosanthes scabra), associated with the anti-nutritional factors (ANFs) (Adjolohoun et al., 2008).
The objectives of this trial were to (i) quantify hand-plucked forage yields, herbage quality indicators, and seed production of eight warm-season legumes, (ii) measure the effects of dairy manure compost application on legume forage yield, seed production, P and CP concentrations, as well as soil-P, and (iii) measure the effect of harvest deferment on forage yields, herbage quality, and seed production.
Palatability of tropical tree legume forage to rabbits.
Sainfoin (Onobrychis viciaefolia Scop.) is an important perennial legume forage with higher crude protein contents which makes its productivity fundamental for beef cattle, sheep meat and dairy production industries (Carbonero et al.,2011) and it is planted in the arid and semi-arid areas of northern China.
