Abstract:
The ensiling characteristics of safflower (Carthamus tinctorius) wilted to 290 and 411 g dry matter (DM) kg-1 fresh material were studied in 1.5 l glass jars. The experiment included a control and the application of Lactobacillus plantarum at 3.3 × 105 colony-forming units (cfu) per g of crop. After 60 days of ensiling, the pH of safflower silages was 4.6 and 4.0 in the control and inoculated silages respectively, with corresponding values for lactic acid, the major fermentation product, of 20 and 45 g kg-1 DM. The silages from the anaerobic jars were stable upon aerobic exposure. It is concluded the safflower silage has potential as an alternative fodder in semiarid regions.
