Résumé
The reduction in local feed stuff recourses is considered as the main constrains for improving and developing animal production in Egypt. The gap between the available feeds and animals requirements was about 6 million tans in term of concentrate feeds and as a shortage of 4.8 million tons of TDN year (El-Ashry2007).The high cost of concentrate feed mixture and clover hays, and unavailability of fresh Egyptian berssem (Irifolium alexandrinum) during summer seasons are the major problems confront the development of livestock. Therefore many projects to produce forages have been established during the last two decades to cover some green forage needs in these countries. Hydroponic technique can be used for green fodder production of many forage crops. It is a well-known technique for high fodder yield, year round production and least water consumption. However, there are some arguments about sprouting grains for convenience of green forage production in hydroponic system to compensate the feed resources for animals, (Rajendra et al., 1998 and Tudor et al., 2003) because the dry matter intake of green fodder by feed lot animals were low due to its high moister content and there is a loss of approximately 12% of the total dry matter in sawing grains as well as the high production cost. Therefore it is believed that inclusion of some agricultural by-products to replace a part of diet for animals become an obligation (El-Tahan et al., 2013). In this study the objectives of using agricultural by-products rice and wheat straw media for green fodder production of barley and faba bean were to decrease the hydroponic production problems by decreasing the fodder product moister content and cost with increasing the product dry matter content.
