Ensiling excessively wet maize with reduced losses

Kukuruza. 6, 13-14
Ensiling excessively wet maize with reduced losses
In laboratory trials, adding chalk, Na2CO3, diammonium phosphate or trisodium phosphate when ensiling young maize containing excessive amounts of water decreased losses of DM from 8.4-11.7% for the control silage to 0.8-4.2%.
