Chr. Hansen Launches New Line of Silage Inoculants

June 3, 2011

Chr. Hansen is launching SiloSolve®, a new line of silage inoculants engineered to address specific on-farm ensiling challenges, while preserving the nutritional value of forage.

The SiloSolve® line consists of three new inoculant products, SiloSolve® AS for Aerobic Stability, SiloSolve® EF for Enhanced Fermentation and SiloSolve® MC for Microbial Control. Each product is engineered with bacteria strains proven to address each of these specific on-farm ensiling challenges, regardless of crop.
Traditionally, silage inoculants have been designed to be crop specific. SiloSolve® focuses on the functionality of the inoculants in relation to the composition of a given crop. For instance, the SiloSolve® approach takes into account a crop’s typical sugar and protein levels along with the typical dry matter concentration at harvesting.
As an example, a crop low in sugar and high in protein ensiled with low dry matter
concentration can sometimes result in a silage that is not well fermented. In this case
SiloSolve® EF would be an ideal match.
A crop to dry matter matrix has been developed to help producers, along with the help of their SiloSolve® representative, understand how to determine the best SiloSolve® inoculant to use.
“With SiloSolve®, we are really changing the paradigm of how producers think about ensiling crops. Given the economic importance of producing and maintaining high nutritional value silage we feel SiloSolve® is exactly what the producer needs at exactly the right time” says Bill Braman, VP Sales & Marketing, Chr. Hansen Animal Health & Nutrition. Learn more by calling 888-828-6600.
