Abstract

This research was designed to determine the effects of molasses supplementation as a water-soluble carbohydrate source on silo fermentation, microbiology, in vitro gas production and relative feed values of pea (Pisum Sativum L.) silage. For this purpose, pea plant was harvested during the pod period. After harvesting, they were crushed to a size of 1.5-2.0 cm and molasses were added at 0 (control), 15, 30, 45 and 60 g/kg fresh material, respectively.
