O.O. Falola, M.C. Alasa, A.J. Amuda and O.J. Babayemi

Abstract:
Vetiver grass was harvested at 4, 6 and 8-week old re-growth. The chemical composition and quantitative analyses of anti-nutritional components were determined. The result showed that dry matter and fiber content increased with age while crude protein, mineral content and anti-nutritional components reduced with age. It was concluded that age of re-growth significantly affect the nutrient and anti-nutrients contents of vetiver grass.
