Africa RISING - Common forages in communal grazing land

Data and Resources

  • forage nutrient composition

    Crops residues commonly fed to ruminants by smallholder farmers were sampled at crop maturity from October to November 2014 and analyzed for their chemical composition to determined the quality of these fodder as the second common feed resources in Northern Ghana to help in sustainable feeding practices
