Tis very expensive and hard to get to the tank behind the cab on the 900 without spilling it and watching the farmer wince as £5 worth of additive washes the steps Razz

The difference is that it is available as powder or liquid. Powder is mostley (over here ) mounted on the front of the harvester, when they use liquid the use the barrels ont he back and nozzle it in the pipe. My English is not so very well but I hope you will understand what I mean. Cool !!!

Wenn you harvest with more than 50% "dry stuff" ( don't know the real name) you can add bacterials who stimulate milkacid and toher acids to get the PH as quick as possible down.

If your grass ore others are to wet, you can add a kind of sugers to stimulate bacterials to make the acids......

Found something on wikipedia:

Quote:
Fermentation
Silage undergoes anaerobic fermentation, which starts about 48 hours after the silo is filled. In the past, the fermentation was conducted by indigenous microorganisms, but, today, some bulk silage is inoculated with specific microorganisms to speed fermentation or improve the resulting silage. The process converts sugars to acids and exhausts any oxygen present in the crop material. Fermentation is essentially complete after about two weeks. Silage inoculants contain one or more strains of lactic acid bacteria, and the most common is Lactobacillus plantarum. Other bacteria used in inoculants include Lactobacillus buchneri, Enterococcus faecium and Pediococcus species.
