Abstract

Straws of five wheat varieties viz, Raj3077, PBW373, PBW154, Raj3765 and LOK1 were evaluated for their chemical composition, in vitro digestibility and gas production. It was found that IVDMD and IVOMD content were higher in varieties  PBW154 and Raj 3077 as compared to other varieties. The gas production/gm DM and gas production/gm digestible DM were significantly (P  exists  a positive relation between the gas production and digestibility.
