The Study of Possibility Corn Silage Quality Improvement and Ensiling Period Reduction by Using Microbial Additives

H. Mansoori Yarahmadi and J. Fakhraei    

Abstract: This experiment was done for quality improvement and decrease ensiling period from 21 to 14 day. Experimental design was completely randomized design with 5 treatments by adding Lactobacillus Plantarum (LP) and Saccharomyses Cervicea (SC) and 3 repeat. Treatments included: 1-without any additive as control (LP0-SC0), 2-0.5 g Lactobacillus Plantarum in 100 kg corn forage (LP1-SC0), 3-0.75 g Lactobacillus Plantarum in 100 kg corn forage (LP2-SC0), 4-0.5 g Saccharomyses Cervicea in 100 kg corn forage (LP0-SC1) and 5-0.5 g Lactobacillus Plantarum and 0.5 g Saccharomyses Cervicea in 100 kg corn forage (LP1-SC1). Silo construction simulated by dark barrel bung. Sampling and evaluating was done for pH, DM, lactic acid, acetic acid and apparent specifications at the 7, 14, 21 days. Treatment LP2-SC0 had lowest pH and highest lactic acid. Results showed that corn silage inoculants by L. plantarum had prepared completely and had high score at 14 and 21 day. pH and lactic acid at 21 day in 3rd treatment was significant with other treatment (p<0.05). Therefore by using of suitable microbial additives, can decrease ensiling period from 21-14 day and prevent from harmful facts. But corn silage consumption is not recommended less than 21 day.
