Changes in growth, digestibility and gut anatomy by broilers fed diets containing ethanol- treated castor oil seed (Ricinus communis L.) meal.

ABSTRACTEight weeks feeding trial was conducted to investigate the chemical composition, growth response, apparent nutrient digestibility, gut characteristics and morphology of broiler chickens fed four diets containing ethanol-treated castor oil seed meal (ECAM). Two hundred day-old Anak 2000 broiler chicks were then allotted to the four experimental diets containing ECAM at 0, 100, 150 and 200 g/kg, respectively. Each treatment was replicated five times with 10 birds per replicate. The fina...

EFFECTS OF DIFFERENT TYPES OF SPACING ON THE GROWTH AND YIELD OF CELOSIA ARGENTEA BY

Overview:This project work was carried out to determine the effect of different spacing on the growth and yield of celosia argentea. The parameters considered for the experiment include plant height, leaf length, numbers of leaves and population of perforated leaves per plant, taken at 3, 5 and 7 weeks after planting. It was observed that the beds treated with spacing of 30cm x 30cm performed better in terms of growth and yield rate, followed by the beds treated with spacing of 20cm x 20cm. I...
