Potency of Indigenous Bacteria from Oil Palm Waste in Degrades Lignocellulose as a Sources of Inoculum Fermented to High Fibre Feed

Yunilas, Lili Warli, Yetti Marlida and Irsan Riyanto


This study aimed to test the ability of indigenous bacteria derived from oil palm waste to degrade lignocellulose as sources of inoculum fermented to high fibre feed. The selection is based on the highest ratio of clear zone the colony grow for 24 h (Kluepfel, 1988). The study we got 10 isolates that could degrades lignocellulose, but 5 among it has a better ability to degrades lignocellulosa with the ratio of clear zone (index hydrolysis) there are YL.B1 (2.9), YL.B2 (2.7), YL.B7 (2.6), YL.B8 (1.7) and YL.B9 (2.5). YL.B1 is the best isolates to degrades lignocellulosa, it shown by the highest hydrolysis index value rather than other isolates. Isolates YL.B1 is indigenous bacteria from oil palm waste, it has the potential to degrade the fiber (lignocellulose) and can be used as a source of inoculum fermented for to high-fiber feed.
