The established Biophage collection of grass preservatives includes

Biophage X  offers a unique combination of "mix and go" or "pre-activation" capabilities.  With "mix and go" the preservative is applied at the recognised industry standard of 1,000,000 bugs per gram of grass ensiled.  Alternatively, pre-activativation 12 hours before application will double the strength to 2,000,000 bugs per gram. It can be applied at this rate, in tough conditions, or used at half strength to reduce the cost per tonne while still reaching the industry standard for application.
Along with four lactic acid producing bacteria, Biophage X contains enzymes, to help the release of sugars for rapid fermentation and phages which attack clostridia bugs that often are the cause of bad smelling, unpalatable silage.
Biophage X-Treme  is designed to deal with the more severe conditions that can be experienced during silage making. Containing five different lactic acid producing bacteria this product is ideal where there has been a lack of sunshine where the fructan releasing strains of bacteria liberate these extra sugars that are unavailable to in conventional additives for rapid fermentation.
Biophage X-Treme also contains phages to attack clostridia bugs.
Biophage Big Bale  has been developed for higher dry matter silages. A "mix and go" preservative, the bacteria have been specifically selected as ones that will act effectively on this type of silage, which is often made into big bales. However, its use is not limited as it can be used on clamped high DM silages to reduce wastage and moulds.
Biophage Green  this "mix and go" product is based on Biophage X-Treme but without the added phages making it acceptable for use on organic farms.
Biophage Beef  is a unique to the range. Added to the preservative is an agent intended to increase the palatability, through taste and flavour, of later cut grasses. Based on the four Biophage X bacteria along with the enzymes and growth nutrients this product also has a combined "mix and go" or "pre-activation" capability.
Biophage ULV  Biophage X -Treme, Big Bale and Green are all available in Ultra Low Volume (ULV) format. They offer all the advantages of the standard products but to be used with a ULV system.
