Extract

There is increasing demand to obtain fast and accurate dynamic nutritional information from forages. Near-infrared reflectance spectroscopy (NIRS) offers the possibility for obtaining such information for a range of nutritional constituents of foods. Herrero et al. (1996 and 1997) calibrated in vitro gas production measurements of a single grass species by NIRS. There would be greater practical benefit if the gas production predictions could be obtained using calibrations derived from a wide range of plant species, since a single equation could be used for all forages. The objective of this study was to investigate if in vitro gas production measurements of a broad based sample population could be calibrated by NIRS.
