Project is devoted to the problem of high-quality feedstuff production in NKR. Artsakh has extensive agricultural lands and favorable climatic conditions making possible producing feedstuff that could meet demands of local farms and implement partial export. Meanwhile quality indices of local feedstuffs in Artsakh are insufficiently studied. Project envisages to conduct two-year field and laboratory studies to assess current state of feed production and preservation used by ruminants in stall-feeding period, their energetic-nutritive values and contamination by toxic heavy metals. Project could stimulate both production of high-quality feeds and process of their exportation.
