Aerobic stability

harvest international plus: increase in stability

In addition to the reduced DM losses and a significant production of lactic acid, the buchneri strain in harvest INTERNATIONAL® plus is able to document a reliable improvement in the stability after opening. Once the silage is exposed to air, it remains an average 2.6 times longer stable than untreated silages.

As for harvest INTERNATIONAL® plus, the improved stability does not come at the expense of an increase in DM resp. nutrient losses.

Usage recommendations

  • grass, maize and WPS, DM: 30 - 50 %

Silages with high DM contents and inadequate compression as well as an inadequate filling have a tendency to mould. After opening, make sure to secure the cutting surface from penetration of air – e. g. by installing a silage gravel bag air barrier. Maintain a feeding rate of at least 1.5 m in winter and 2.5 m in summer.
Application: Apply 1 g of harvest INTERNATIONAL® plus per tonne of forage

Usage instructions

Dissolve the freeze-dried powder in a sufficient amount of water and apply evenly over the forage using the suitable amount of water for your applicator.
The mixed solution should be used up within 48 hours.

Storage and shelf life

From date of manufacture, harvest INTERNATIONAL® plus has a shelf life of 24 months if frozen, 18 months if stored at a temperature of +4 °C and 12 months if stored at +20 °C.
