On making silage of wild plants and waste farm products

By 浩 須藤 and Hiroshi Sutoh


The author has made an experiment on making silage of wild plants, waste farm products and rubbish of the kitchen for the purpose of estimating their value as the material of silage, of finding the direction for ensiling them, and also of estimating the nutritive value of the silage made. Satisfactory silage was prepared from corn plants, taro leaves, taro stems, unused leaves of cabbage, the rind of egg plants, green pods of pea, hairy vetches, chickweeds, stems and leaves of horse bean, mugworts, stems and leaves of radish, and sweet potato vines. These silages have generally been found to be favourite feeds with livestocks. Digestion experiments of the silage of unused leaves of cabbage on guinea pigs have resulted in satisfactory coefficients of digestibility. When the material containing a large quantity of moisture is used, close attention should be paid to the preparation of silage.(1) 野草, 農場廃棄副産物(茎葉類)厨芥等を原料としてエンシレージを製造し, その成分, 酸含量を知ると同時に埋藏間の変化を考察し, 家畜に対する嗜好牲, 品質, 消化率等を研究し, 製造並びに利用上の基礎に資した. (2) 玉蜀黍茎葉, 里芋葉, 里芋茎, 甘藍残葉, 茄子剥皮, 碗豆黄(緑), すゞめのえんどう, はこベ, 蚕豆茎葉, よもぎ, 大根茎葉, 甘藷蔓等によつて何れも満足なエンシレージが得られた. 多くのエンシレージは家畜に嗜食された. (3) モルモットによる甘藍残葉エンシレ一ジの消化率は良好で澱粉価9.6と推定された. その他については尚研究を要する
