Effect of inoculation with Lactobacillus plantarum and addition of molasses on ensiling paddy straw (Oryze sative LK) and berseem (Trifolium alexandrium)

Publisher: Karnal NDRI 1980Subject(s): Dairy-MicrobiologyDissertation note: Ph.D. Thesis Kurukshetra University 1980 S.Neelakantan Summary: The aim of the present investigation was to optimise the conditions for preparing a good quality silage from paddy strain of lactobacillus plantarum as inoculant to hasten the single formentation. The control silage of paddy straw and 11 cut berseem (1.3) has les acid production yielding a PH of 5.95 and lactic acid content of 0.27 per cent on 30 th day of ensiling. It has been shown that addition of molasses alone also accelerated the acid production in mixed silage but at higher doses viz 6 percent molasses. However lower doses of molasses addition at 0.5 percent along with inoculation of L plantarum S-2 to mixed forage yielded under laboratory conditions a good quality silage of PH 4.25 with a lactic acid content of 2.90 per cent within 15 days with application of higher dose of molasses viz 4.0 percent and with inoculation the lactic acid could be increased to 7.12 percent which amounted to 78.07 percent of the total acids yielding a silage PH of 375. A higher dry matter digestibility of 65.0 percent was obtained for mixed field silage treated with 0.5 percent molasses and inoculation as compared to 62.6 percent for control treated silage. A slightly higher application of molasses under field conditions with inoculation would yield a better quality silage as that obtained under laboratory condition.
