Background: Daucus carota is a herbal plant that is rich in benefits, and has long been used in traditional medicine, because it contains phytochemicals that are antibacterial, antioxidant and growth promoter. Reseach aims to analyze phytochemical compounds of carrot leaves, as well as the implementation of carrot leaf juice (CLJ) to stimulate growth and suppress pathogenic bacteria in ducks. Materials and Methods: Inhibition test of carrot leaves against E coli bacteria was carried out in vitro using the diffusion well method using E. coli as the test bacteria. This feeding trial study used 240 male Bali ducks aged two weeks with 4 treatments and 6 replications. The four treatments were a group of ducks that were given drinking water without CLJ as a control (A); supplemented with 1% CLJ (B); 2% CLJ (C); and 3% CLJ (D), respectively. Results: The results showed that the phytochemical compounds in Daucus carota L. leaves were phenolic compounds, tannins, saponins, flavonoids, steroids, and terpenoids, and beta-carotene was 908.75 mg/100 g leaves. There was a significant increase (P<0.05) in feed consumption, body weight gain, and feed efficiency in groups C and D ducks rather than control. Serum cholesterol in duck groups B, C, and D decreased significantly (P<0.05) rather than control. Conclusion: It can be concluded that the implementation of CLJ at the level of 2-3% via drinking water can increase the growth and suppress the number of pathogenic bacteria in the duck intestines.[Full Text Article]
