How to make good maize silage. Conservation in the silo

How to make good maize silage. Conservation in the silo

Informatore Agrario 36(36): 12021-12024, 12027-12029

In ensiling forages particularly maize, factors influencing the activity of microorganisms (chemical composition, temp., aeration, microorganisms present); problems of ensiling (forage too wet or too dry, dark brown silage colour and mould microorganisms); and improving CP content by addition of urea and improving pH by calcium carbonate are discussed.
