The Effect of Supplementation of Phytase on Broiler Rations to the Retention of Phosphor, Calcium and Nitrogen

Gita Ciptaan, Yetti Marlida, Periadnadi and Yose Rizal


The research was conducted to determine the optimum dose of phytase supplementation of Fusarium verticillioides on Phosphor-deficient rations. This study used 24 broiler chickens (4 weeks). This research used Completely Randomized Design (CRD) with five ration treatments with 4 replications. Ration treatment was supplemented phytase with different doses: R1: 0 U/kg, R2: 250 U/ kg, R3: 500 U/kg, R4: 750 U/kg and R5: 1000 U/kg. Ration was based on iso protein (20%) and iso energy (2882 kcal/kg). The variables measured were retention of phosphor, calcium and nitrogen. The results showed that supplementation of phytase on broiler rations which Phosphor-deficiency was influenced the retention of Phosphor, calcium and nitrogen significantly (P<0.01). The optimum phytase supplementation of Fusarium verticillioides on broiler rations which phosphor-deficient was 750 U/kg ratio, it is seen from retention of phosphor (71.38%), calcium (75.65%) and nitrogen (67.61%).
