MetadataShow full item record
This study was carried out in Bingol Province of Turkey in the growing season of 2012 to determine the nutritive value of different soybean varieties. A total of 12 different soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] varieties supplied from Eastern Mediterranean Agricultural Research Institute, Western Mediterranean Agricultural Research Institute, Aegean Agricultural Research Institute and May-Agro Seed Company were used as the plant material of the field experiments. Experiments were carried out in randomized block design with 3 replications. Green herbage and hay yields, crude protein (CP), protein yield (PY), crude ash (CA), dry matter digestibility (DMD), dry matter intake (DMI), relative food value (RFV), acid detergent fiber (ADF) and neutral detergent fiber (NDF) characteristics were investigated. The results showed that the varieties Blaze, Ataem-7, Cinsoy, Nova, Erensoy and Türksoy were considered as primary varieties to be used in animal feed and agricultural activities of the region with regard to hay yield and quality.
