Nova-Sile 500® is a food grade bacteria based inoculant designed for use on all ensiled forages. Research shows that using Nova-Sile 500® promotes a fast and efficient fermentation dominated by lactic acid production. Rapid production of lactic acid during silage fermentation can lessen dry matter loss (silo shrink) while increasing feed energy values and prolonging bunk life.
Nova-Sile 500® contains viable, naturally occurring homofermentative lactic acid producing bacteria (HLAB), and is formulated with Pediococcus acidilactici and Lactobacillus plantarum to add 100,000 colony forming units (cfu) total of HLAB per gram of ensiled feed. This is consistent with university silage inoculant application recommendations. Nova-Sile 500® is freeze-dried (viable) bacteria on soluble sugar carriers with a blue coloring identifying agent. Nova-Sile 500® is packaged in heat-sealed, foil-lined pouches to exclude oxygen, UV light, and moisture thus preserving the lactic bacteria viability. Nova-Sile 500® is one of the most cost effective forage feed enhancement additives available.
