Abstract


The nutritive value of fodder chicory is close to the quality of fodder alfalfa, i.e. under certain technological conditions, fodder chicory has a higher nutritive value and more raw protein. Studies show that over three experimental years, the content of raw protein reached values ranging between 23.69 and 25.26% with mineral fertilisation and between 21.88 and 22.81% with organic fertilisation, compared to only 21.06% in the control variant. Depending on the content of raw protein, the amount of raw protein increased with 40.7% with mineral fertilisation and with 22.4% with organic fertilisation, compared to the control variant.


Keywords


chicory (Cichorium intybus L.); mineral fertilisation; organic fertilisation; total nitrogen; raw protein.
