Comparative evaluation via in vitro analysis of different inoculant on silage making


Ahmad Wari, Nik Nur Anis Syuhada (2017) Comparative evaluation via in vitro analysis of different inoculant on silage making. [Project Paper Report]


Ensilaging forage into silage is a method to improve the feed quality in term of digestibility. Ensilaging process are compressing and fermenting fodder crops under anaerobic condition. Inoculants were added into silage to increase the digestibility of the fodder. In this study, the different inoculant of effective microorganism and rumen fluid are used to determine the digestibility by using in vitro analysis. The three treatments with six replicated for each silage has being made. Silage was made using 6 weeks Napier grass that has being chopping for 3 cm average. Silage without inoculant was the control treatment. Treatment 2 was used Effective microorganism as the inoculant and treatment three are used rumen fluid as inoculant. All silages are fermented for 21 day in the seal plastic bags. In vitro gas production was measure every four hours for 72 hours. The gas production result showed significant difference (P<0.05) between control silage and inoculated silage. But, there are no significant difference (P<0.05) between two inoculated silage. The same results are show for the chemical analysis of organic matter (OM), neutral detergent fiber (NDF), acid detergent fiber (ADF) and acid detergent lignin (ADL).
