Abstract: A large number of hydrophytes are an important feed resource for live stock. The leaves and shoot of the plants are rich in protein, carbohydrate and minerals, which supports the animal for the maintenance of their health. An account of hydrophytes plant of India was published still large area remains unexplored. However, some important hydrophytes such as Eichhornia crassipes, Hydrilla verticillata, Trapa natans var bispinosa, Ipomoea aquaticaand Typha angustata found in Sri Ganganagar, District of Rajasthan have not been subjected to their proper study and therefore the present study has been undertaken for the first time to fill up this gap. The estimation of total ash, crude protein, crude fiber, nitrogen free extract, calcium, phosphorous etc. from the collected plant material, is easy to conduct of comparative study on Hydrophytes.
