Silage additives for Organic Farms

Organic farmers need to get the most from their forage, so effective fermentation and improved aerobic stability are essential to achieving good silage preservation.

Whether ensiling grass, high-protein grass/clover mixes, wholecrop or arable silage, using an appropriate inoculant, maximising forage compaction in the clamp and using a truly effective oxygen barrier sealing system can all improve the quality of the end result.

With our proven range of silage additives, Activator Plus, Activator+CA and Pro-Active Bio we offer a solution for all organic silage makers.

The unique Silapactor can remove more air from a clamp than conventional rolling with a tractor and reduce the amount of fuel used.

To finish the job, O2 Barrier 2in1 will give a more effective seal than conventional silage sheeting, creating anaerobic conditions in the clamp faster, and maintaining an oxygen-free environment for longer.
