  • Vermicomposting influences phosphorus microbiology leading to phosphorus enrichment in end product

    The investigation reveals the relative efficacy of composting techniques regarding phosphorus transformation of rice straw (RS) and water-hyacinth (WH). The recipe for each substrate: cow-dung:soil:FYM was in the ratio of 6:3:0.5:0.5. Vermicomposting of WH resulted in the highest proliferation of phosphate solubilising microorganisms (PSM) and their solubilising capacity (PSC) besides causing the ...

  • Yield and nutritive value of ‘spring green’ Festulolium and ‘Jesup’ Endophyte-free tall Fescue stockpiled for winter pasture

    Pasture-based dairies in the Midwest have a difficult time providing high-quality pasture during winter. Little is known about the yield and nutritive value of festulolium when stockpiled for winter grazing compared to tall fescue. In this study, the yield and nutritive value of ‘Jesup’ endophyte-free tall fescue [Schedonorus phoenix (Scop.) Holub.] and ‘Spring Green’ festulolium [Festulolium ...
