Abstract

The objective of the work went evaluate the characteristic chemical-bromatológica of the jitirana, as well as its potential in the animal feeding. Jitirana was harvested with 115 days for evaluation of the production of green mass and analysis chemical-bromotológica. The samples were removed of an experimental area of 35 x 35 m, being made like this 1.050 m2. The samples were taken for the laboratory of animal nutrition of the Department of Zootecnia (DZ / ESAM), for they be made the due matter analyses it evaporates, gross protein, ethereal extract, mineral residue, organic material and gross energy. In spite of the percentile bass of dry matter of the green forage of the jitirana, the percentile of gross protein, mineral residue and ethereal extract, besides the production of green mass were satisfactory.
