Magniva® Classic

Magniva® Classic Inoculant is a dry form of silage inoculant containing a blend of Lactobacillus plantarum, and Pediococcus pentosaceus and the enzymes amylase, cellulase, hemicellulase and pentosanase. The bacteria are microencapsulated and are combined with the enzymes to optimize benefits from the silage inoculant.

About the Product

Magniva® Classic silage inoculant uses a combination of bacteria to aid in the fermentation of ensiled materials, by rapidly lowering the pH of the forage to protect proteins. Faster fermentation will minimize ensiling losses and conserve dry matter to boost feed value. Magniva® Classic is formulated to minimize unpalatable acetic acid production.

Four specially selected strains of lactic acid-producing bacteria give Magniva® Classic the ability to operate effectively across a wide range of conditions. These beneficial strains dominate the less efficient naturally occurring bacteria, increasing the effectiveness of the fermentation and reduces effluent loss.

At the same time, four different enzymes work to release extra sugars quickly and efficiently from the different carbohydrate sources in the forage. This is particularly important in different ensiling conditions.

Apply Magniva® Classic Inoculant Uniformly to the Silage:

Spread over each wagon load prior to unloading, or spread on top of each load of forage in the storage facility, or use mechanical metering device at the chopper, blower or elevator.

Always use a moisture meter.

Always employ good silage management practices.

Always follow label directions: The use of any forage additive cannot be expected to overcome poor management. Proper storage and handling is important to forage inoculant performance. Products should be refrigerated, and the whole package should be used at one time. Visit for the latest information on silage management practices.

General Guidelines
  • Cut and wilt forage during favorable weather conditions.
  • Harvest forage or grain at ideal maturity and at correct moisture levels.
  • Always use a moisture meter when possible.
  • Chop to optimum length based on forage type and processing to ensure adequate packing.
  • Add Magniva® Classic silage inoculant uniformly at correct usage levels.
  • Ensile the forage as quickly as possible.
  • Pack well and seal or cover securely.

Storage and Handling Tips:

Store Magniva® Classic silage inoculant in a cool, dry area. Shelf life under these conditions is 12 months.
