The use of lactic acid bacteria as starter cultures for the conservation of green forage. Part 3: Silage experiments with selected strains


, : The use of lactic acid bacteria as starter cultures for the conservation of green forage. Part 3: Silage experiments with selected strains. Wirtschaftseigene Futter 38(2): 124-130

16 single strains of Lactobacillus plantarum, L. paracasei, L. casei subsp. plantarum, Pediococcus acidilactici and Enterococcus faecium, and 14 strain combinations were tested on grass silage made from the first cuttings of Festuca pratensis, Poa pratensis and Phleum pratense in May 1990. 1.5-litre preserving glasses, each filled with 800 g silage and 10 ml inoculum, were incubated for 90 d at 25 degrees C.
