All parameters were observed at the end of harvest of crop. Results revealed that sweet potato vines are rich in nutritive value as protien content in vines ranges from 3.02 % to 7.38% while magnesium ranges 443.73 ppm to 471.84 ppm and this crop can be utilized as an alternative feed resource for ruminants to reduce competition between animals and humans.
