BONSILAGE-silage additives convince at silage competition of chamber of Agriculture in Lower Saxony


© Volker Hämmerling

The 2017 silage competition of the Lower Saxony Chamber of Agriculture once again proved the strength of Europe's leading silage additive BONSILAGE. Grass silages treated with BONSILAGE came in first. An optimal cutting time and an adapted silage management are prerequisites for the success of a good silage.

 

 

The analysis results show that the use of BONSILAGE silage additives leads to high-quality silages. The desired parameters pH value (lactic acid formation) and acetic acid formation (stability) can only be achieved by applying the correct silage additive. This is proven by the first-place grass silages from the silage competition of the Lower Saxony Chamber of Agriculture (see figure). Weather conditions presented farmers with major challenges in 2017. Nevertheless, they have succeeded in producing high-quality silages.
