Productivity and nutritional value of pasture agrophytocenoses based on cereals and legumes

The paper presents the results of studying the influence of the species of perennial legumes and cereals on the productivity and nutritional value of pasture agrophytocenoses of the European North of the Russian Federation. The field experiment was started in 2017 and is still continuing. In the course of the research, it has been found that the most nutritious and highly productive, in comparison with the control variant, are the mixtures of legumes and cereals with the inclusion of festulolium or perennial ryegrass.

Festulolium and domestic ryegrass use for pasture agrophytocenosis creation

The article presents the research experiment undertaken in 2017 in the experimental field of the North-Western Research Institute of Dairy and Grassland Farming, i.e. a separate division of the Federal State Budgetary Institution of Science Vologda Scientific Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences. The study has shown that the use of new species and varieties of grasses (Festulolium and domestic ryegrass) have positive results in creating pasture agrophytocenosis.

Influence of harvesting time of cereal crops on the productivity and the quality of the forage in the conditions of the European North of Russia

The article presents the results of studies on the impact of grain harvesting on the productivity, species composition, nutritional value of grain fodder for 2001-2005. The highest productivity is provided by grains during harvesting in the early phase of wax ripeness of grain. The obtained grain is successfully stored when creating hermetic conditions and using biological and chemical preservatives. Losses during the storage of wet plum grain when using the preservative Biotrof 600 and spruce needles are reduced by 1.5-2.0 times.

The application of bio-preserving agents in the procurement of corn silage in the vologda region Fomenko Polina Anatoljevna, senior researcher

The quality of harvested corn silage with the use of preserving agents and without preserving agents was studied. The nutritional value of corn silage and the production of high quality feed for feeding highly productive animals have been revealed. The positive effect of preserving agents on the quality of corn silage has been established.
