From: Yield survey and nutritional evaluation of garlic stalk for ruminant feed

Item Garlic stalk Rice straw SE P-value
Dry matter fractions (%)
 53-μm filterable and soluble A fraction 13.6 11.6 0.8 0.059
 Degradable B fraction 60.5 22.4 3.0 <0.001
 Undegradable C fractiona 25.9 66.0 2.8 <0.001
K dBb (% h−1) 8.2 5.0 1.5 0.072
Neutral detergent fiber fractions (%)
 53-μm filterable and soluble A fraction 2.0 1.4 1.0 0.631
 Degradable B fraction 68.0 33.5 4.2 <0.001
 Undegradable C fraction 30.0 65.1 4.1 <0.001
