Silage bags are packaging and storing systems for silage, which is a green fodder stored in compact and airtight conditions. Silage bags prove to be cost-effective storage systems for farmers who require additional storage capacity. Silage bags substitute other silage storage alternatives such as piles, bunkers and silo systems which require high investment cost. The market for silage bags is driven by awareness among farmers to prevent wastage of fodder and other agricultural produce used to feed animals during the dry seasons.
Silage is produced by the actions of microorganisms especially bacteria that degrades materials such as chopped feed, pressed grass and pulps, which require storage conditions with atmosphere barrier and compacting functionality. Silage bags used to store silage are made of 3 layers of coextruded polyethylene comprising of 2 white layers to make the bag weather proof and 1 black layer which protects the grain from sun light. The silage bag prevents the product from water and atmosphere contact, thereby increasing the shelf life of the product.
Silage bags prove useful in the preventing the wastage of agricultural products, thus coping up the demands of increasing world population for food supply.
