The purpose of green fodder can be stored for a long time and its nutritional values to be maintained that is acceptable at world level. So we also have a special need to move fast in this direction.

A steady rise in the price of various animal feed ingredients and in view of the reduction in availability as well as irregularities, the Green Fodder is an easy and suitable source of nutrients for milching animals. But preserving the green fodder is essential for maintaining the regular availability of green fodder. Especially when there is scarcity of fodder, good quality fodder is available regularly in different seasons throughout the year to feed the animal for that preservation of green fodder in the form of "Silage" is an excellent remedy. Silage is a preserved green fodder.
