Silage Advice

Can inoculants be used on low sugar grass?

Very wet grass silage stabilises at a lower pH and the acid produced is diluted so you need more to achieve this. This means you also need more sugar and a minimum of 3% (fresh basis) used to be recommended. If an inoculant is applied, however, you could get away with significantly less as the sugars are used more efficiently.
