Extra Dry Conditioner

Conditioners carefully rub the layer of wax covering the crop. The forage is then deposited across the full width in an airy blanket.

  • Shorter drying period in the field, less risk from the weather.
  • Increases energy content by up to 10% – saves concentrates.
  • Better silage quality due to rapid reduction in PH-value.
  • No tedding (or less tedding) required, which saves time and simplifies the process.
  • Careful conditioning process reduces loss due to disintegration of sensitive leaves – providing more protein for the silage.
  • Fewer passes protects the stubble and crop. Savings of much money a hectare per year are possible as a consequence.
