Research in progress
- Effects of plant species, season and anti-nutritional factors on rumen ecology, in-vitro gas production, dry matter degradability and nutrient utilization by small ruminants fed cowpea haulms.
- Studies on effects of management, season, planting age, distance and cutting intervals on biomass production and nutritive value of indigenous fodder plants.
- Evaluation and Nutritional screening of lesser known tropical indigenous browse plants, leguminous shrubs and Multi Purpose Tree species for dry season livestock feeding and agroforestry technologies.
- Utilization of unconventional oil seeds, legumes and crop by-products as ingredients in least – cost concentrate rations for small ruminants production and fattening.
