Hand full of green silage


Bacterial inoculant for improved fermentation and aerobic stability of silage making – the solution to your silage challenges

SILOSOLVE® FC has consistently yielded silage preferred by dairy cows. SILOSOLVE® FC promotes rapid, controlled fermentation and ensures that dry matter and nutrients from the field are preserved and available for your cows.


SILOSOLVE® FC improves aerobic stability while improving dry matter recovery

SILOSOLVE® FC is a unique, dual-action inoculant that improves aerobic stability and at the same time improves dry matter recovery. Its effect can be seen over a broad range of forages and dry matter levels. This was shown in a 30 days university trial, where SILOSOLVE® FC increased aerobic stability, and the dry matter recovery across crops was significantly improved compared to untreated silages.

SILOSOLVE® FC allows you for early feed out 

When purchasing a silage inoculant, L. buchneri is a common ingredient. However, literature review indicates that normally it produces acetic acid after 56 days of ensiling. That is not the case for SILOSOLVE® FC, as acetic acid production has been observed on day 2 of ensiling maize silage and as a result improved aerobic stability even after a short fermentation time. In alfalfa silage aerobic stability was improved by 13 days. This proves that not all strains are the same, and that strain selection is key to success.

* p<0.05 significantly different from untreated. Aerobic stability test stopped after 7 days.



Figure 4: SILOSOLVE® FC improves aerobic stability 125% at early feed out in alfalfa silage


* p<0.05 significantly different from untreated. Aerobic stability test stopped after 30 days.

What’s inside SILOSOLVE® FC?

SILOSOLVE® FC contains our proprietary strain of Lactobacillus buchneri LB1819, plus our unique strain of Lactococcus lactis O224. This novel combination facilitates rapid establishment of anaerobic conditions and improves fermentation. As a result, your silages will have a limited yeast and mold growth, resulting in improved aerobic stability at feed out – even as early as seven days of fermentation.

Targeted crops for SILOSOLVE® FC include whole crop maize, small grain, grasses and alfalfa/grass mixtures. SILOSOLVE® FC is particularly effective when there is a risk for fungal growth and across a broad range of moistures.


Can SILOSOLVE® FC be used in organic farming?

In order to meet organic requirements, SILOSOLVE® FC EKO was designed to provide all the positive effects mentioned for SILOSOLVE® FC without you making any compromise.
