Azola Production for Animal Feed
To enrich the feeds
and feeding of the cows, goat and poultry, KVK introduced the
innovative concept i.e. feeding of Azolla. Azolla is blue green
algae and generally used as biofertilizers due to its high proteins
contents ( 24 percent) besides amino acid ,vitamins and minerals.
Basically azolla is bioagent, which is not harmful to nature and can
be produced with very little investment with minimum technology.
With this intervention, KVK conducted trials on cow, goat and
poultry and found that not only we can save the concentrate feed by
20 to 25 per cent which is very costlier but also the yield of meat
or milk has been increased by 10 to 15 per cent.
