An aerobic Lactobacillus plantarum culture displayed growth stagnation during early growth. Transcriptome analysis revealed that resumption of growth after stagnation correlated with activation of CO2-producing pathways, suggesting that a limiting CO2 concentration induced the stagnation. Analogously, increasing the CO2 gas partial pressure during aerobic fermentation prevented the temporal growth stagnation.

Five key lessons from your open grass silage clamp
Having results of a silage analysis is one thing. But often, it’s only when you get stuck into seeing what’s inside, and feeding it, that you get a full picture of what you’ve produced. And how good it is. The quality (and quantity) of your silage can have a major impact on the financial health of your business for six months or more. So, it’s worth checking it now, to see if any improvements can be made next year. The key is to commit to noting down your clamp observations. Better...
The risks of spreading slurry after first silage cut
Livestock farmers spreading slurry onto fields after first-cut grass silage face heightened risks of contamination after this year’s early start to the season, a silage specialist is warning, especially if following the current trend to more frequent silage cutting.The risks of spreading slurry after first silage cut According to Ecosyl silage expert, Darran Ward, spreading slurry after first-cut always poses a risk – because of the challenge of achieving the 10-week interval typically recommended...
How to produce good quality silage
We all know the benefits of good silage. But are we really all doing everything we can to produce good quality silage? If you want to help protect your farm business against ups and downs in milk or meat prices, or feed costs, there’s a straightforward approach: maximise the amount of milk or meat produced from home-grown forage. It is arguably one of a livestock farm’s biggest assets. Producing quality silage Grass harvest will be here before we know it. So it makes sense to get the most from it....
