GREEN FODDER / SILAGE PRESERVATION
Adding a new dimension to the industry
Anolyte, generated by Envirolyte units, is recommended as a preservative in green fodder / silage preparation / preservation for storage. Introduction of anolyte basically does not affect the traditional procedure of green fodder / silage preservation.
In this application anolyte serves as a conservative, which does not cause side effects for the quality of green fodder/silage, which is often the case when traditional chemical preservatives are used. At the same time anolyte performs as a regular conservative adding acidity to green fodder/silage and disinfecting it. Apart from this anolyte actively inhibits “breathing” of the plants what results in saving of many important vitamins that usually disappear when temperature goes higher than 50Co.
The important advantage of anolyte application is that the high quality green fodder/silage can be preserved for future consumption regardless of the green mass moisture, composition and weather conditions.
Green fodder/silage conservation with anolyte results in better quality of the produce and its preservation. Eventually better consumption of the green fodder/silage leads to increased milk production (by 19%) and higher weight gain by the young animals (increase in average daily weight gain by 42%).
Cost effectiveness of anolyte application against traditional conservative/preservative
|Type of Conservative||Cost of 1 ton (EUR)||Requirement
per 1 ton of silage (L)
|Cost of conservative
per 1 ton of silage
|Anolyte||2,5 EUR/Ton or 0,0025 EUR/L||15 L/Ton||0,0375 EUR/Ton|
|Traditional conservatives based on mixed organic acids||800 EUR/Ton or 0,8 EUR/L||5 L/Ton||4,0 EUR/Ton|

Some of the practical ways of anolyte application for silage preservation in EU
300 litre container is used to store anolyte and spray it evenly over every next layer of silage
Anolyte is sprayed manually over each layer of silage
