Forage inoculant with improved stability

27-03-2007 | |

Biotal forage inoculants manufactured by Lallemand Animal Nutrition feature a new formula for improved stability.

This new formulation ensures the product stays viable when mixed with water
for application. Once the bacteria in inoculants have been re-activated by
mixing with water they begin to produce acids as they do when they are applied
to forages.

In many inoculants this is uncontrolled and the
bacteria can die off quickly. The new formula protects the bacteria from
these potential negative effects, ensuring the bacteria remain viable for an
extended period of time. The inoculants are formulated, packaged, and shipped
under strict quality control measures to ensure product strength and

Greater flexibility
“Stability of the inoculant is a
major concern. Our new formulation means that producers have greater flexibility
and more assurance that they are indeed applying a live, viable product through
liquid application systems,” said Dr. Bob Charley, Lallemand Forage Products
Manager. “Of course, stability of the bacteria following rehydration is affected
by water quality and ambient conditions, so producers should check with their
local representative to get a realistic estimation of post-rehydration shelf
life for their operation.”
