Effect of Weed Extract on Forage Quality of Medicago sativa L.

Dr. N. H. Brahmbhatt, Haresh S. Kalasariya


Abstract: From all forage crops, which together with meadows have a major contribution in ensuring the forage base, alfalfa crop (Medicago sativa L. ) occupies a position of great importance. This plant is distinguished by its forage value, high cultivation area and high digestibility, and from the point of view of farmers and world's agricultural sciences is considered to be the Queen of Fodder Herbs. In order to determine the quality of alfalfa, a series of classical analysis for cellulose, Neutral Detergent Fiber, Acid Detergent Fiber and Acid Detergent Lipid were performed. In the present work, Oscillatoria sp. and Spirogyra sp. were used as inoculum in pot culture of Medicago sativa. The result revealed that addition of all algal extracts can enhance forage quality in all treated plants. Statistical analysis showed that there are significant differences in % ADF, % NDF, %DDM, %DMI and RFV as compared to control.
