Performance Evaluation of Different Animal Wastes on Culture of Daphnia sp.
D.K. Damle and M.S. Chari

Abstract:
Cow dung, goat dung and poultry waste are easily available animal waste. This necessitates increasing need for valorizing organic waste such as agro-industrial residues and animal manures. To identify most productive animal waste for production of zooplankton i.e., Daphnia present investigation entitled Performance evaluation of different animal waste on culture of Daphnia sp. was carried out. Inoculate 4-5 Daphnia in each tub. T0 was kept as controlled treatment which contained only bore well water. All animal wastes were analyzed at the beginning of the experiment and it was observed that groundnut oilcake had highest nitrogen (5.02%), phosphorous (0.45%) and potassium (0.85%). Among animal waste goat dung had highest amount of nitrogen (2.10%) whereas poultry waste had highest amount of phosphorous (0.40%) as well as highest amount of potassium (0.43%). It was observed that nitrogen content was highest in poultry waste (7%). Among the animal waste the highest mean production of Daphnia was found in T3 i.e., which had 50 g of chicken dropping (79.00 individual mL-1) and lowest in T8 i.e., which had 25 g of Goat dung (23.33 individual mL-1). Among different doses of poultry waste (chicken dropping) T3 having 50 g of animal waste (79.00 individual mL-1) yield highest number of Daphnia whereas lowest was recorded in T2 with 25 g of chicken dropping (49.00 individual mL-1). Among different doses of Goat dung, Treatment T9 having 50 g of goat dung yield highest production (44.00 individual mL-1) whereas, lowest was recorded in T8 (23.33 individual mL-1).
