Natural methane inhibitors

Plant materials from Carduus pycnocephalus, Paeoniae alba radix, Populus tremula, Prunus avium, Salix caprea, and Rheum nobile and extracts thereof form a group, components of which are suitably used to decrease the methanogenic activity in the rumen digesta. For these components no important detrimental effects have been observed on other fermentation parameters. Preferred components are the plant materials from Carduus pycnocephalus, Populus tremula, and Rheum nobile and extracts thereof, especially preferred are Carduus pycnocephalus and Rheum nobile. These plants have the potential to decrease methane emissions, and thus to decrease greenhouse gas emissions, as methane is a potent greenhouse gas.
