A robust range of user-friendly packaging has been introduced for Ecosyl 100 and Ecocool silage additives for 2018.

The high-density polyethylene (HDPE) two-litre bottles are easier to handle during busy fill-ups and when transporting on-farm and they also offer improved resilience to factors such as temperature and humidity during storage, according to Ecosyl’s Jackie Bradley.

The bottles also remain compatible with the increasingly popular method of ultra-low volume (ULV) application.


“Silage making is a busy time and, understandably, producers and contractors want an additive that’s reliable, but also easy-to-use,” says Mrs Bradley. “The rigid-sided bottles are robust during transport and sturdy to handle when measuring and mixing.

“Equally suited to use with conventional or ULV application, the bottles also feature handy indicator arrows near the neck to show the two-litre fill-level to help contractors and producers who are using the ULV method. Diluting Ecosyl 100 or Ecocool in the new packs to the two-litre mark will treat 100 tonnes of forage when applied through a ULV applicator, at a rate of 20ml per tonne.”
