Jan 29, 2015 - America - The silage refers to preservation technology that could let the fermentation green feed maintain its quality for relatively long time by the sealed condition. The silage has soft texture, good palatability and high digestibility. It is one kind of direct-fed forage without the boiling step and save a lot of fuel. Today, the famous Potato Machinery, Agricultural Implements and Silage Making machines supplier agriculturemachinerybusiness.com will introduce with people the material and attentively tips for Silage Making.
First, the raw material for silage making
The sources for the materials for Small Agriculture Machinery is very broadly. All kinds of green straw, leaf vegetables, fresh green plant leaf stalks, vegetables, weeds, water, peanuts, duckweeds and so on can be used as the materials for good silage.
Second, the attentively tips for silage production
In general, the basically points for silage making could be concluded into adequate moisture, sugar, chopped, compaction and seal. The following information will tell detailed information about those factors one by one.
The moisture content rate of the general silage should be 70% to 75%. If people could press the chopped silage by their hand and hands have the feeling damp, it could be said that the water content is enough. However, the minimum water rate could be not less than 55%. For the situation of water shortage, people could spray some water on the raw materials. If the water content is very high, the material can be mixed with hay powder , bran and others.
As the introduction of famous Rice Transplanter supplier agriculturemachinerybusiness.com, the soluble sugar content of the raw material for silage should be the minimum of 2%. For the situation of insufficient sugar, the raw material can be incorporated into the green plants with higher sugar content or adding the appropriate amounts of bran and starch.
The most suitable temperature for silage making is 20 degrees and the maximum degrees could not exceed 37 degrees.
The general length of the raw materials should be less than 2 cm which will let the process of compaction and exhaust become so easy. Generally, the coarse raw materials should be chopped into small length and the soft materials can be appropriately longer. After cutting and chopping process, the silage making material should be process as soon as possible.
The storage, chopping and compacting process for the silage raw material should be done at the same step. For the small-scale compacting operations, the compaction process could be done step by step by human force. If it is the large silage making pool, it will be available for the tractor compaction. After the material is full, people need to let the material surface be higher than the pool deck for about 20cm to ensure that there is no leakage or infiltrated rainwater after the sinking.
After the compacting the silage raw materials, the surface of the silage pool need to be covered with a layer of plastic film and then cover again about 20 to 50cm of soil. After 30 to 45 days’ ferment, the silage can be modulated success.
