OptiSile Silage Additives

OptiSile silage inoculants employ a triple strain bacterial approach to ensure:

  1. a rapid fermentation and protection against bacteria
  2. protection during storage against mycotoxin fungi
  3. long term stability once the clamp face is opened and exposed to oxygen

OptiSile has proven effective on many farms, over a wide range of crop types and dry matters in the UK and abroad.

OptiSile Silage Additive Range:

A three-strain combination of Lactobacilli developed by Envirosystems is employed in OptiSile Extra. One is the widely used L plantarum, to support a standard lactic acid fermentation. The combination of the other two are proven…

OptiSile Wholecrop is designed specifically for treating wholecrop forages and arable silages over a wide range of dry matters.

OptiSile Maize is designed specifically for the challenge of maintaining a cool stable clamp face when opened as well as promoting rapid fermentation.

Shields Against Mycotoxins

OptiSile inoculants are designed to inhibit spoilage organisms such as listeria and clostridia as well as yeast and mould spores in the early stages of acidification and at the open clamp face and at feed out in the trough.

Mycotoxins are problematic secondary metabolites and are poisonous to ruminants resulting in health problems and costly loss in production and profitability.

OptiSile treatment will defend against yeasts and moulds.
