NS-5 Microbial Inoculant

Features and Benefits

NS-5 Microbial Inoculant is a forage inoculant for corn silage, sorghum silage and high moisture corn that contains a source of live naturally occurring microorganisms.

To inhibit major spoilage organisms, NS-5 contains a specially selected strain of concentrated, stabilized and fast acting bacteria Lactobacillus plantarum. NS-5 drives fermentation by producing high levels of lactic acid to quickly lower silage pH. By enhancing fermentation, NS-5 helps increase nutrient availability and improve feed intake for maximum production efficiency. NS-5 also provides longer aerobic stability for enhanced bunk life.

This safe and easy-to-use product has been proven by university and field research conducted on a variety of corn hybrids, harvest and storage conditions.
