Summary of research
The study is aimed to explore nutritional strategies with the use of synthetic amino acids (lysine, methionine, tryptophan and threonine) and phytase to reduce green house emissions through reduced nitrous oxide (NO2) and methane (CH4) in the manure, A total of thirty (30) growing pigs weighing between 15-20 kg will be fed six experimental diets and evaluated for growth, nutrient digestibility (dry matter, energy, nitrogen, organic matter), amino acid utilization and manure gas emissions at the end of the 16-week experiment.
