1174 inoculant

Pioneer's 1174 inoculant contains live lactic acid-producing bacteria that have been specifically selected to assist in the production of high quality silage.

Patented strains of Lactobacillus plantarum and Enterococcus faecium have been proven to promote faster fermentation while increasing dry matter recovery.

Australian trials found a 13 kg upside per tonne of 1174-treated silage fed to beef cattle compared to untreated feed.
