Pilot inkuilen Grote waternavel ten behoeve van veevoeding

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


This report describes the results of a practical ensiling experiment with Greater water pennywort, in which the processing of the plant material and the effect of drying on the ensiling result and nutrition value has been investigated. The conservation of the ensiled product was very poor (even after drying) due to the high water content, low sugar content and soil contamination. The intake of the wet product by pigs seem to be good. The poor preservation proved no obstacle. Greater water pennywort has potential as fodder for pigs given the nutritional and good intake. What is needed are methods to harvest cleaner and to ferment the product better.
