Relative ratings on a 1 to 9 scale. 9 = Outstanding, 1 = Poor, Blank = Insufficient Data.

IMPORTANT: Information and ratings are based on relative comparisons with other Sila-Bac® brand inoculants within each specific crop, not competitive products. Information and ratings are assigned by Pioneer Forage Additive Research, based on average performance across area of use under normal conditions, over a wide range of both environment and management conditions, and may not predict future results. Product responses are variable and subject to any number of environmental and management conditions. Please use this information as only part of your product positioning decision. Refer to www.pioneer.com or contact a Pioneer sales professional for the latest and most complete listing of traits and scores for each Sila-Bac brand product.

Fermentation – rate and extent of pH decline and the composition of fermentation acids occurring in silage.

Bunklife – relative heat development compared to ambient temperature. Bunklife considers both how quickly silage begins to heat and the amount of heat generated while remaining above ambient temperature.

Nutritional Quality of Feed – the relationship of nutrient composition of silage compared to the harvest forage. A perfect nutritional quality score of the silage would be equivalent to a fresh harvested forage that has not undergone fermentation or storage.

Fibre Digestibility – the digestibility of neutral detergent fibre (NDF) by the ruminant animal expressed as a percentage of the total NDF.
