Announcement of IBSnet Electronic Seminar

Date; 11 - 29 June 2001
Title: Improvement of nutritive quality of crop by-products using bioprocess technique and their uses for animals
Presented by: Dr. Bachtar Bakrie (Indonesia)

The nutritive quality of crop by-products may be improved through bioprocess technique known as a solid state fermentation using
Aspergillus niger. The use of this technique on some crop by-products as well as their uses as animal feeds are reviewed in this
paper. It has been reported by some scientists that this bioprocess has caused an increase in the crude protein contents of cassava
roots (from 3% to 18-42%), cassava leaves (from 19% to 26%), cassava fibre (from 1.5% to 18.5%), sago fibre (from 3% to 16.5%) and
cocoa shells (from 16.5% to 21.9%). The improvement in the nutritive quality of these by products is followed by a significant
increase in their inclusion in animal diets compared to those of unfermented ones. This technique has been used on feeding trials
using animals both in experimental station and in the field. More work is needed to be done in order to simplified the technique so
that it can be applied easily for smallholder farmers.
