Bonsilage Alfa

Special additive for lucerne and clover grass silages

Combination of homofermentative and heterofermentative lactic acid bacteria (LAB) strains for lucerne and clover grass that is difficult to ensile with a dry matter content of 30-45%. The homofermentative LAB L. paracasei and L. plantarum split fructans and thus lower pH values reliably, rapidly and sustainably. The homofermentative LAB Lc. lactis, which is known to inhibit clostridia directly, reduces the risk of butyric acid fermentation. The heterofermentative L. buchneri ensures that moderate quantities of acetic acid and propanediol are released and thus provides better protection against reheating.



  • fast and permanently pH-reduction due to fructan disintegrate lactic-acid bacteria especially among difficult silage conditions of Lucerne and grass-clover
  • directly inhibition of Clostridia
  • protection of valuable protein
  • better aerobe stability due to moderate detachment of acetic acid
