Biomin: new inoculant for wrapped silages
Biomin has developed new silage inoculants, which are designed especially for
wrapped silages (round and big bales, also called "silo
Wrapped silages (especially big bales) are often more
difficult to compact well. Thus the soluble sugars in the plant are less
available for the lactic acid bacteria (LAB) and are released slower. Natural
occurring LAB is less effective in slowing fermentation. Therefore the final pH
of wrapped silage may be above a stable pH level. This is the reason why farmers
recognize the importance of good ensiling practices (crop maturity stage,
moisture content, bale density, speed of storing, etc.) and the need of the use
of silage inoculants to assure the right fermentation in the wrapped silages.
After numerous laboratory and field trials, Biomin® BioStabil Wraps has
shown to have a higher production of lactic acid and therefore lower pH value,
decreased butyric fermentation or inhibition of the Clostridia fermentation and
a higher recovery of energy in the ensiled matter.
The strains contained
in Biomin® BioStabil Wraps are listed in the positive lists of many countries of
the world, including the European Union and USA (GRAS status). Biomin® BioStabil
Wraps is the third silage inoculant developed by Biomin, which completes the
silage inoculant product line Biomin® BioStabil.Related
