Silage production is imperative for alleviating animal feed shortage, increasing animal production and productivity, and generating income to smallholders’ farms. This study was conducted to produce quality silage from Cenchrus biflorus (Indian sandbur) grass using different level of molasses and urea for Desert sheep in Ennhod Locality of North Kordofan State, Sudan. Five treatments were used in a complete randomized block design (CRBD) of three replicates each. Molasses and Urea were used as 0.0% as control treatment (T5), while Urea was constantly used as 0.5%, added to molasses ratio which was kept changing as of 0.0%, 5%, 10% and 15% for the other four treatments, consecutively. Each treatment was ensilaged for 30 days using plastic bags buried in a soil to ensure a complete fermentation and high-quality silage. Chemical analysis revealed that the increase in molasses percentage (%) decreases the crude protein percentage (CP %), and consequently the crude fiber percentage (CF %) increases. Dry matter percentage (DM %) remains more or less constant with an increase of molasses percentage to the silage. Results revealed that 5% molasses additives improve CP% in rangeland grass as such, could be recommended for improvement of grassland. Seemingly, molasses additives to C. biflorus grass above 5% level are not recommended for silage production during the grazing season for pasture animals. Nitrogen-free extract percentage (NFE %) showed no significant differences throughout all the treatments. The use of urea alone as an additive to improve C. biflorus grass is recommended as a second alternative to 5% molasses level for quality silage production.
