Ensiling excessively wet maize with reduced losses

Ensiling excessively wet maize with reduced losses

Kukuruza. 6, 13-14

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%.
