Classic performance for grass and corn silages


BONSILAGE BASIC WS is a biological silage inoculant based on natural lactic acid bacteria. Under standard ensiling conditions, it is a cost effective way to improve the anaerobic stability, nutritional quality and palatability of silages.


Find detailed product information below.

Mode of action
  • Pc. pentosaceus and Lb. plantarum quickly lower the pH level by quickly producing lactic acid in the front-end fermentation cycle.
  • A rapid pH drop is highly important in order to provide a controlled fermentation which inhibits anaerobic dry matter losses.
  • This enhancement results in highly palatable and stable silages for increased feed intake and nutritional value.

In conjunction with ISF and our Gut Hülsenberg agricultural research facility, we conduct extensive ensiling and feeding research and on-farm trials to ensure the highest level of performance from BONSILAGE products. BONSILAGE BASIC WS induces an efficient fermentation process and reduces anaerobic dry matter losses.
