Azolla Plant has enormous potential as a livestock Feed:
- Its high content in proteins, essential amino acids, vitamins (vitamin A, vitamin B12, Beta Carotene), growth promoter intermediaries and minerals.
- Its ability to proliferate without inorganic nitrogen fertilization.
The aquatic fern Azolla can grow without nitrogenous nutrients because of the presence of the N2-fixing ability of symbiotic Anabaena. ... The high level of crude protein of Azolla and higher lysine concentration indicated that Azolla plants may be a good source of fish feed.
