High dry matter (DM) crops are more prone to aerobic spoilage, especially at feedout. This results in high DM losses, significantly reducing their potential intake and production advantages.
There are now well over 200 fermentation trials on Ecosyl, covering a wide range of crop types, DMs and ensiling conditions. Whichever way you look at the results, Ecosyl has been shown to significantly improve fermentation.
Several silage additives were tried, but only Ecosyl had that ability to not only boost silage quality, but to keep it stable as silo pits were opened and used in all seasons.
