Mulberry for Animal Production: Proceedings of an Electronic Conference Carried Out Between May and August 2000

Front Cover
Mulberry, the feed of silkworm, was one of the first domesticated forages in the world and has been the subject of intensive research over the last few decades. Where the mulberry grows naturally and where sericulture is well established, its foliage and the production residues are regularly fed to livestock. However, its intensive cultivation and use specifically for animal production only started during the last two decades. This publication contains the articles distributed to the subscribers of the first electronic conference on mulberry for animal production which was held between May and August of 2000, in response to the growing interest in the cultivation and use of mulberry to feed various domestic animals. The contributions covered a variety of topics including germplasm resources in various countries, agronomic aspects, chemical composition, nutritive value and animal performance.
