Moringa oleifera leaf (MOL) has been proved to improve silage fermentation but the exact reason is unclear yet. Fermentation quality, protein preservation, antioxidant activity and bacterial community of stylo and alfalfa ensiled with 5%, 10% dry MOL, stylo or alfalfa were investigated. The present results showed that mixing MOL led to the decrease of pH (5.15 vs 4.76, 5.71 vs 4.57 for stylo and alfalfa, respectively), butyric acid (15.1, 28.3 g/kg DM vs not detected), ammonia-N (111 vs 50.7, 351 vs 100 g/kg total N) contents, and the increase of lactic acid content (8.70 vs 13.0, 0.23 vs 14.0 g/kg DM) and antioxidant activity relative to the control. The relative abundance of Clostridium was lowered (55.4% to 1.69%, 8.34% to 0.57%), whereas Lactobacillus was increased (14.9% to 63.2%, 11.7% to 23.5%). In conclusion, nutrients in MOL help to improve protein preservation and nutritional value of high-moisture stylo and alfalfa silage.

The type species of the genus ALFAMOVIRUS that is non-persistently transmitted by aphids.
Any food that has been supplemented with essential nutrients either in quantities that are greater than those present normally, or which are not present in the fortified food. The supplementation of cereals with iron and vitamins is an example of fortified food. Fortified food includes also enriched food to which various nutrients have been added to compensate for those essential nutrients removed by refinement or processing. (From Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)
