Our technique

Silobolsa PLASTAR represents a technique designed to store grains, seeds, fertilizers, and fodders with a high degree of moisture for animal nutrition.

The Silobolsa technique is a system of silage bags manufactured by Plastar San Luis S.A. and co-extruded in three layers. When dry grain is stored, the respiration process consumes oxygen, creating a stable atmosphere low in oxygen and rich in carbon dioxide. These conditions prevent the growth of insects or micro-organisms inside the Silobolsa.

SAVINGS

The use of the Silobolsa system saves on commercialization costs and solves the lack of storage space and the logistics problems that arise at harvest time.

CONSERVATION

QUALITY

Dry grains and pulses routinely stored in SILOBOLSA® Plastar bags include soybeans, corn, wheat, sorghum, barley, rice, beans, sunflower and rapeseed, amongst others. The modified atmosphere inside the Silobolsa conserves the quality of the grains.

VERSATILITY

Grains routinely used for fodder include: corn, sorghum and green chop. Storage of these grains in silo bags produces lactic fermentation, conserving nutritional properties similar to those in the original grain.

Bagging conditions

MOISTURE

Optimal moisture ranges from 58% to 68%. Higher values can create butyric fermentation, causing loss of sugars and proteins. Values under this range can slow fermentation or even prevent fermentation from taking place.

s

LOSSES FROM EFFLUENTS

If moisture in grains to be bagged is higher than 75%, many of the juices rich in proteins and soluble sugars will be lost to leachates.

LOSS DURING THE SILAGE PROCESS

Silage loss depends directly upon the distance between the place of harvest and the site of bagging in Silobolsa silage bags.

OPTIMAL CHOP LENGTH

Chop length should be between 8 and 12 mm.

Z

DESGASIFYING

Nitrogen oxides must be removed to produce proper anaerobic fermentation.

Location and care

HEIGHT

Silobags should be stored in high places, with level, compacted floors, free of weeds, with proper drainage.

PROTECTION FROM BREAKAGE

Protect storage sites from livestock and rodents

ACCESIBILITY

Store Silobolsas in areas which allow for ease in removing fodder
