Some farmers use ground ear maize silage to improve the ration. The DM – content of such silage is higher as in normal maize silage. Therefore requirements on silage management is also increasing. The energy value of such silage is ca. 7,4 MJ NEL / kg DM.
Yield (to / ha)
15 – 20 to / ha
45 – 55 % DM
- Easy to ferment
- Heating up and molding
- Due to the DM and the bulky nature of particles problems with compaction are possible
For better dispersion, dissolve one sachet in 2 – 3 times more volume of water than normal.
- < 50 % DM normal dosage
- > 50 % DM 1,5 time of dosage
Ensiling of thin layers (≤ 20 cm)
Make sure, there are no air gaps between the particles
