Nutritive value of the water fern azolla pinnata for chicks

, : Nutritive value of the water fern azolla pinnata for chicks. Poultry Science 57(2): 378-380

The water fern A. pinnata, capable of assimilating atmospheric N2 due to the presence of algal symbiont in its leaves, apparently was rich in protein, minerals, chlorophylls and carotenoids. Feeding studies with chickens revealed that inclusion of fresh Azolla in the diet can replace about 20% of commercial feed.
