Livestock Feed

Azolla is extensively used throughout Asia and parts of Africa to feed pigs, ducks, chickens, cattle, fish, sheep and goats and rabbits.

Green plants have long been recognized as the cheapest and most abundant potential source of proteins because of their ability to synthesize amino acids from a wide range of virtually unlimited and readily available primary materials.

Azolla is the most promising aquatic plant for livestock feed due to its ease of cultivation, productivity and nutritive value and various studies have concluded that Azolla’s composition makes it one of the most economic and efficient feed substitutes for livestock.
