The Effect of Harvest Time and Wilting on Quality of Lupine Silages
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of different harvest time and wilting on quality of lupine silages. Forage from Lupinus albus (cv. Amiga) was harvested in four different times. Forage was divided into two parts where one part was ensiled immediately and second part after wilting. Silages were stored for ten weeks and after opening analysed on chemical composition, quality of fermentation process, organic matter digestibility and dry matter losses. Younger forage had significantly lower dry matter content and fiber fractions in comparison with older ones. Digestibility of organic matter was affected by wilting. The highest effect of wilting was detected for dry matter losses, where differences among wilted and unwilted silages were since 4.5 to 23.5 %.
