Ruziye Karaman, Muharrem Kaya, Cengiz Türkay


It was carried out in Isparta University of Applied Sciences, Faculty of Agriculture Education, Research and Application Farm experiment fields in 2017. The aim of the study is determinate the effects of mung bean genotypes grown as second crops on forage yield, quality and mineral content. 02 G 06 and 70 S 01 mung bean genotypes were used as seed material in the study. The study was conducted to completely randomized block design in the factorial design with three replications. It was examined plant height, dry weight, ADF, NDF, ADL, TDN, hemicellulose, cellulose, relative feed value, metabolic energy properties and Mg, K, Ca, P, Fe, Cu, Mn and Zn contents in the study.
According to obtained data, it was varied between plant height 6.45-53.78 cm, dry material ratio 18.42-23.82%, ADF content 15.21-20.99%, NDF content 30.99-39.87%, ADL content 4.39-7.0%, TDN 66.61-70.95%, hemicellulose 13.81-24.66%, cellulose 8.21-14.35%, relative feed value 179.8-228.9, metabolic energy 10.33-11.10 MJ kg-1, Mg content 0.34-0.46%, K content 2.39-3.41%, Ca content 2.39-2.84%, P content 0.30-0.38%, Fe content 202.67-586.0 ppm, Cu content 7.67-11.50 ppm, Mn content 121.75-245.0 ppm and Zn content 29.0-38.17 ppm. As a result, it is thought that mung beans can be grown as a second product after the grain harvest and be a quality forage.
