About the book
This book aims to investigate the recent advances in the ensilage technologies through the results obtained for several forage crops used around the world as well as to bring the new perspectives for using chemical and microbial additives to making silages well preserved. It will present new additives with great potential to be used in many types of silages. Chemical and microbial additives have been widely used to control undesirable fermentation, as well as to ensure high aerobic stability. However, some new additives are being studied with great expectations. We intend to describe the different types of silos used in all conditions both in large and in small scale and how to control the losses during the fermentation process and after silos opening.
