Silage is an important feed source in animal nutrition. However, silage production and preservation can come with various challenges. The quality of silage is influenced by factors such as the fermentation process, aerobic stability, hygiene, and energy loss. To improve these factors, it’s necessary to treat your silage with a suitable silage additive. Josera Josilac Combi is a silage additive developed to protect your silage and increase your yield. Josera Josilac Combi is a biological product containing both homofermentative and heterofermentative lactic acid bacteria. These bacteria rapidly lower the pH of the silage, ensuring intensive lactic acid fermentation. Additionally, they produce controlled amounts of acetic acid from plant sugars and pre-existing lactic acid. This suppresses undesirable fermentations in the silage and provides protection against heat. After exposure to air, the silage remains stable for a longer period.
Protect Your Silage and Increase Your Yield with Josera Josilac Combi
Josera Josilac Combi is a biological silage inoculant and additive. It is used to accelerate the fermentation of plant material during silage production, enhance its quality, and reduce the risk of spoilage.
Josera Josilac Combi provides high-quality silage, reduces the risk of spoilage, offers a wide application range, and is easy to use. Josera Josilac Combi is an ideal solution for farmers seeking high-quality silage. The product contains a high concentration of homofermentative lactic acid bacteria and highly effective enzymes. This ensures a rapid and effective fermentation process during silage production, resulting in high-quality, tasty, and nutritious silage.
What Are the Advantages of Josera Josilac Combi?
- Universal application: Josera Josilac Combi is suitable for various feed crops and dry matter ratios due to its special bacteria combination known as SYMBIOSIS-EFFECT.
- High flexibility: Josera Josilac Combi can be applied in low doses (also as ultra-low volume [ULV]) and in liquid form.
- Easy to use: Josera Josilac Combi can be mixed with non-chlorinated water or sprayed onto the silage evenly using Josilac® dosing equipment.
How to Use Josera Josilac Combi?
- Application area: Silage for maize, whole-crop silage, high dry matter green fodder, and silage for biogas production

Main Application Range of Josera Josilac Combi
|Silage for biogas production
What Are the Benefits of Josera Josilac Combi?
In silage used for feeding:
- Low fermentation loss due to consistently high energy dry matter
- Low feed loss due to high aerobic stability (silage remaining stable after exposure to air)
- Healthy and hygienic feed due to reduced yeast and mold formation and secondary heat generation
In fermentation substrates for biogas production:
- Low energy loss due to protection against undesirable fermentations
- Continuity of valuable starting materials for gas formation, reduced dry matter loss
- Low energy loss during silage removal and loading for fermentation (high aerobic stability)
- High gas yield due to a high proportion of acetic acid, a precursor to methane
Advantages of Josera Josilac Combi
- High concentration of homofermentative and heterofermentative lactic acid bacteria
- The product has been tested by DLG (1c, 2 grass)
Frequently Asked Questions about Josera Josilac Combi
- What is the DLG test?
The DLG test is a quality control test conducted by the German Agricultural Society (DLG). Josera Josilac Combi has passed the DLG test in the 1c (maize silage) and 2 (grass silage) categories. This indicates that the product improves silage quality and optimizes the fermentation process.
- What is SYMBIOSIS-EFFECT technology?
SYMBIOSIS-EFFECT is a special bacteria combination contained in Josera Josilac Combi. These bacteria work together to enhance silage fermentation and aerobic stability. By producing both lactic acid and acetic acid, they lower the pH of the silage and provide heat protection.
- Which feed crops is Josera Josilac Combi suitable for?
Josera Josilac Combi is suitable for various feed crops, including maize silage, whole-crop silage, green fodder, and silage for biogas production. Note that it’s suitable for silages with a dry matter ratio of 28% – 45%.
- How is Josera Josilac Combi applied?
Josera Josilac Combi is applied in liquid form. You can mix the product with non-chlorinated water or spray it onto the silage using Josilac® dosing equipment. You need to use 3 g of Josilac® Combi per ton of fresh feed. If using micro-dosing technology, you can apply it at a rate of 50 – 100 ml/ton.
- What is the shelf life of Josera Josilac Combi?
The shelf life of Josera Josilac Combi depends on storage conditions. You can store it in its unopened original packaging at room temperature for 6 months, in the refrigerator for 12 months, and in the freezer for 24 months. Make sure to check the expiration date before using the product.
