The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has predicted that sub-tropical regions are more vulnerable to climate change’s negative effects (CC). Additionally, to CC, land use and land cover (LULC) changes and dam construction, often neglected, play an important role in the spatial and temporal distribution of water balance components (WBC) for...

Rice plays a paramount role in food and nutrition security in many West African countries. Despite the doubling of production during the last decade, rice consumption has grown faster, creating a deficit between the demand and supply. Although the West African sub-region remains the main rice-producing centre on the continent, production is severel...

In this study, we aim to evaluate the chemical characteristics, and nutritional quality of raw meat from broiler chicken fed a black soldier fly larvae meal. Three hundred twenty female broiler chicks were divided into four dietary treatments (8 replicates/treatments). Birds were fed maggot meal at 0%, 4%, 8%, and 12%. At 42 days of age, 16 birds/t...

Although the egg is one of the foods offering nutrients of high biological value, the diet of layer chickens can change these characteristics. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of a long-term dietary replacement of fish meal with maggot meal of black soldier fly larvae on egg quality of hens. A total of 480 one-day-old Isa brown chic...

This study was conducted to investigate the effects of fish meal replacement by black soldier larvae meal on biochemical parameters, thyroid hormone and productive parameters of egg-type chickens from day old to 68 weeks of age. A total of 480 day-old Isa Brown egg-type chickens were assigned to four dietary treatments with larvae meal to replace f...

The fall armyworm, Spodoptera frugiperda (J.E. Smith) is native to the Americas and a major pest of corn and several other crops of economic importance. The species has characteristics that make it of particular concern as an invasive pest, including broad host range, long-distance migration behavior, and a propensity for field-evolved pesticide re...

A joint project between West African Science Service Center on Climate Change and Adapted Land Use (WASCAL), the University of Lomé and the German Biomass Research Center (Deutsches Biomasseforschungszentrum; DBFZ) was initiated in 2020. The project aims at evaluating alternative and regenerative energy sources for rural areas and creating the basi...

... The protein content in feed had an effect on the height and level of fish growth. Lack of protein in feed can cause growth retardation, followed by weight loss due to the use of protein from body tissues to maintain vital functions (Mlaga et al., 2020). ...
... BSFL contain approximately 31 to 45% crude protein (CP) in dry matter (DM), and are rich in minerals such as Ca and P, implying an important ingredient for chicken diets (Maurer et al., 2016;Bava et al., 2019). The inclusion of partially defatted BSFL meal in broiler diets at 10% increased feed intake (FI) and average daily gain and improved feed conversion efficiency (Attivi et al., 2020). The suitability of BSFL-meal up to 20% in broiler diets was confirmed by higher body weight (BW) in the grower and finisher phases (de Souza Vilela et al., 2021). ...
