    The effect of silage additives on ensiling characteristics and nutritive value of Napier grass (Pennisetum purpureum) silages was grass silages were made with no additive, fermented juice of epiphytic lactic acid bacteria (FJLB), molasses or cassava by: 9. For example, if the recommended amount of N fertilizer for a pure grass stand is 60 lb/ac, then the recommended N in a stand with 25 per cent alfalfa would be reduced by about 25 per cent to 45 lb N/ac. There is little need for N fertilizer if the percentage of alfalfa exceeds the percentage of grass in a forage .

Focus on Forage - Vol 3: No. 13 Page 1 Interpretation and Use of Silage Fermentation Analysis Reports by Limin Kung and Randy Shaver Introduction Fermentation analyses have long been used in university and industry research trials to assess silage quality. These analyses are now avail able for evaluating silage quality on farms throughFile Size: KB.

    All lawn fertilizers contain three primary nutrients that are labeled in this order on the packaging: nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium (NPK). Fertilizers for flowers, trees, shrubs, edibles and other plants can have different ingredients in different amounts, so always use fertilizer specifically designed for grass for the best results. Research the nutrient requirements for the crop you are growing. Lawns and landscaping may benefit from a fertilizer blend with a larger proportion of nitrogen and moderate amounts of potash and phosphate, whereas garden plants are likely to benefit more from a specialized blend using less of one element, and more of another. If you are unsure of the exact needs of your 86%().

pp.6 by: 2. Tower silos were filled in one season with orchard grass, a mixture of alfalfa and bromegrass, and alfalfa alone, and in the next season with red clover alone or with alfalfa; sodium metabisulphite in different amounts, or molasses, or no preservative was by: 2.

In wood stave silos 95 cm X cm were packed with orchard grass cut just after head and chopped legumes 12%. Additives were none, molasses mixed feed (see preceding Abst.) 5, Na2S2O5 or wheat bran 5% and the forage was well tramped and weighted.

After 3 months the respective silages had pH, total acidity as acetic acid on fresh matter basisFrom results, it was recommended that silage be made from wellmanaged pasture, of red clover at half to full flowering and of grasses grasses Subject Category: Organism Groups see more details after heading but before flowering.

Moisture should be 74 to 80%, so if much clover is present the forage should be wilted for 1 to 2 h. Maize at the Darawah stage (one month old plants) can be ensiled to be utilized as fodder for animals. The effect of addition of sodium metabisulfite in different concentrations, ranging from –%, on the chemical and microbiological properties of the maize silage was studied throughout the fermentation period, which extended over 16 by: 1.

∗ Increased use of large, heavy machinery for harvesting grass, picking up soil. ∗Compacted anaerobic soil increases IRON solubility encouraging increased uptake by grass. ∗Less rolling of silage fields prior to cutting. ∗High applications of anaerobic slurry which depletes soils of oxygen.

Fertiliser rules for this year’s grass silage. Grass silage has a large nutrient demand and adequate N, P & K is essential for maximising grass yield and producing sufficient winter feed. Soil pH – Maintain soil pH at to for optimum grass production. Essential to maximise the availability of N, P and K in the soil.

NPK recommendations for silage To maximise silage yield it is vital to supply the nutrients which the crop requires, this can be achieved with knowledge of your soil fertility.

Indexes from recent analyses are important in this process as nutrient applications are depend on the soils latent fertility. The nutrient value, using published figures, of any dung or slurry applied need to be.

Soil pH – Maintain soil pH at to for optimum grass production. Essential to maximise the availability of N, P and K in the soil. Nitrogen (N) is the key driver of grass yield.

Leave a minimum of 3 months between lime applications and closing for grass Size: KB. Soil temperature is now 9 degrees here in Tyrone and grass is beginning to jump; quite timely as we need to be closing off silage ground now and applying fertiliser to grass.

I have been asked several times this week which fertiliser is best to apply on silage ground – there is no ‘one fits all’ fertiliser, start by looking at your soil analysis, is your pH on target, is the P/K index high 3s.

Advice is to use 80 units/ac for permanent pasture and 90 units/ac for reseeds. Generally, allow 2 units/day from application date to cutting date. Should I delay cutting to increase volume.

For quality silage, harvest the crop in late May. Grass will seed /. inorganic fertilizer use. In addition, some irrigation water sources add nutrients to soil. For these reasons, soil testing is essential to determine which nutrients are needed and in what amounts for forage production.

Fertilizer recommendations described in this guide are based on the latest research results from Utah State University trials. Quality Grass Silage for Dairy and Beef ProductionSystems 3 Grass silage costs approximately to times graz ed grass per tonne of DM fed.

Most of the additional cost is incurred through harvesting and fixed charges, plus feed-out costs. Dry matter yield is the most important factor affecting cost per tonne of silage fed.

First. Defining targets for grass silage production The three key elements to cost-effective grass silage production for beef cattle are: 1. High grass DM yields for first-cut and subsequent cuts, with high total annual grass yield (> tonnes DM/ha).

Guideline yields are t DM/ha and up to t DM/ha for silage harvested in. Make your patchy and dull lawn, lush, green, and thick with our 6 effective and easy to make Homemade Lawn Fertilizers that are safe hazardous chemicals.

Epsom Salt Lawn Fertilizer. Epsom salts contain two elements that boost lawn grass and its lushness-Magnesium and Sulfur. (1) Using Napier grass 1 m high (about 30 days regrowth) - chopped.

(2) Using Napier grass 1 m high (about 30 days regrowth) - unchopped. (3) Using Napier grass of m high (about 80 days after transplanting) - chopped. An aliquot of silage sample from each silo was placed into a bottle with water and kept in a refrigerator overnight. When you add equal amounts of the two fertilizer percentages you then must also divide by two.

In your case, an equal amount of the added to the becomes a final fertilizer. Experiments with methods of maliing grass or legume silage.-_ 6 Making grass silage 6 Making legume silage 1.

Part 1 – Calculations using the fertilizer label The bags of commercial fertilizer that we use contain a label which specifies how much to use to achieve a given fertilizer Size: 98KB.Results. Native grass responded very well to fertilizer, especially phosphorus.

In addition, plots fertilized with phosphorus produced significantly more forage than unfertilized plots or plots only fertilized with nitrogen one year after fertilization ceased.Choosing the right food for lawns begins with understanding grass fertilizer numbers and knowing your soil and sod type.

Grass Fertilizer Numbers. Lawn maintenance is more than just mowing, thatching and aerating. Turf grass is a heavy feeder and requires regular moisture to look its best.

All plants benefit from basic macro- and micro-nutrients.
