Nova-Sile® is a food grade bacteria based inoculant designed for use on all ensiled forages. Research shows that using Nova-Sile® 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® 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® is freeze-dried (viable) bacteria on soluble sugar carriers with a blue coloring identifying agent. Nova-Sile® is packaged in heat-sealed, foil-lined pouches to exclude oxygen, UV light, and moisture thus preserving the lactic bacteria viability. Nova-Sile® is one of the most cost effective forage feed enhancement additives available.
