The potential for the nutritional improvement of cassava root sieviate by microbial degradation using Aspergillus niger was investigated over a period of ten days. The proximate constituents of the biodegraded CRS were significantly improved (p0.05) significantly different from those fed biodegraded diet in terms of body weight gain and feed consumption. Hen day production of layers on biodegraded compared favorably with control and were significantly higher than those fed undegraded diets. The metabolizable energy of layers fed biodegraded were significantly lower (p
