Abstract: A study was conducted to assess the nutritional values of unripen jackfruit silage (UJFS) as well as jackfruit residue silage (JFRS). Silages were prepared from unripen jackfruit as well as jackfruit residue, procured locally and were subjected for their characteristics and chemical analysis. Study revealed that DM content of UJFS was 35.05% and pH was 3.92. On DM basis, UJFS contained 94.55, 9.52, 2.07, 5.45, 36.11, 25.58, 3.37, 1.91, 1.46 and 1.25 per cent of OM, CP, EE, TA, NDF, ADF, total silica, biogenic silica, sand silica and ADL, respectively. Similarly, JFRS on DM basis, showed 93.54, 8.77, 1.91, 6.46, 34.08, 27.88 and 1.06 per cent of OM, CP, EE, TA, NDF, ADF and ADL contents, respectively. From the present study, it was concluded that unripen jackfruit/Jackfruit residue can be ensiled successfully and they have a potential nutritive value for feeding livestock.
