Author(s):

Abstract:
Saponins are plant glycosides possess a number of pharmaceutical and biochemical properties. They have the ability to alter ruminal microbial population both in in vivo and in vitro conditions. Saponins inhibits the methane formation during enteric fermentation of ruminants by altering the activity of methanogenic bacteria. They also affects the growth and number of several ruminal fibrolytic bacteria and fungi. In several studies it has been also observed that Saponin has no effect on mitigation of greenhouse gases. The inconsistence results on effect of Saponin on rumen ecosystem needs more studies for concrete outputs.
