Originally published in the Journal of Applied Microbiology Introduction Silage consists in green forage preserved by spontaneous lactic fermentation under anaerobic conditions (Miller 2001). The primary purpose of making silage is to maximize the preservation of original nutrients in the forage crop with minimum losses in the nutritional quality that allows its use as fodder during periods of f...

21/07/2016 | Great article ,However the mycotoxicological risk of different ensiling practices and determing of the most adequate method to minimize economic losses and reduce the hazard to animal and human health collected by the researchers need to be shared.
Further more as mentioned in the article that since silage making is a very ancient method of conserving the animal feed hence if a study could be designed to know that how much losses have been realized(Human & Animal) due to mycotoxin presence.

Thanks for such a good presentation of the matter.
