Basic nutrient requirements of the domestic quails under tropical conditions: A review
Languages of publication
Due to multiple benefits and prolific nature of the domestic quails, a review on basic nutrient requirements is highly relevant. Requirement under tropical conditions for water, protein, essential and non-essential amino acids were reviewed. Other basic requirements that included energy, vitamins, major and micro minerals were also captured.
