SILASIL ENERGY.XD - the new biological ensiling agent for energy crops


SILASIL ENERGY.XD combines highly-efficiently the three lactic acid bacteria strains - Lactobacillus diolivorans, Lactobacillus rhamnosus and Lactobacillus buchneri. The production takes place using special technology.
SILASIL ENERGY.XD is particularly recommended when rapid silage ripening times of between 2 to 6 weeks are necessary!
 

Use of SILASIL ENERGY.XD


Dosage: 2 g powder in 0.05 – 2.0 l/t,
equivalent to min. 200,000 cfu/g silage
Whole plant maize silage 28 - 40 % DM
Maize products
(e.g. CCM) 55 – 65 % DM
Grain WPS
(as energy crop silage)
28 - 40 % DM
Energy grass 30 - 45 % DM
Sorghum: >25 % DM
 

How SILASIL ENERGY.XD works


Its rapid acetic acid formation has an excellent inhibitory effect on yeasts
The active effect is focussed on the metabolism of L. diolivorans.
The short generation times and clear competitive strength give the selected bacterial strains advantages over the natural harmful microbes. The basis for the synthesis of additional preserving metabolites (e.g. 1-propanol) is the rapid acetic acid formation during the early fermentation phase. With the aid of these heterofermentative processes, the high-quality silage is protected considerable faster than before from the energy losses caused by moulds and yeasts. All the synergistic metabolic processes of this strain combination involve only minimal energy consumption.
 

The result


Examples of use for accelerated silo ripening
SILASIL ENERGY.XD – the unique bacterial combination for faster silo ripening:
• controls the ensiling process
• shortens the silo ripening time
• increases the silage stability at the face and in intermediate storage
• reduces the energy losses due to processing
