MAGNIVA Classic: Forage inoculant for all forage types

MAGNIVA Classic is a forage inoculant specially designed to drive the rapid fermentation and preservation of all forage types. It is especially suitable for low dry matter (DM) forages – which are often lower in sugar content – requiring a quick and efficient fermentation. It delivers silage with more retained dry matter and higher nutritional value.

Product Description

How it works

P.pentosaceus NCIMB 12455 quickly drives the fermentation, lowering the pH to around 4.5. L.plantarum MA18/5U drives the fermentation to completion at around pH 3.8-4.0. Dependent on DM, enzymes provide the release sugars from the forage, ensuring a quick fermentation plus help increase silage digestibility.

Silage made with MAGNIVA Classic will have reduced dry matter losses and higher nutritional value can help you maximise the energy and nutrient content of your silages for a well-preserved and high-quality feed



Why it matters

P. pentosaceus NCIMB 12455 multiplies rapidly over a wide temperature and moisture range to quickly dominate the fermentation. The use of adapted acidifying inoculants, designed for grass forages, accelerates the acidification process, thus limiting proteolysis. A combination of bacteria and enzymes helps to drive a fast, efficient initial fermentation and puts you in control of silage quality.

To answer the needs of today’s rapid harvests and ensure uniform application of the product, MAGNIVA products contains Lallemand Stable Suspension Technology, developed by Lallemand Animal Nutrition.

  • Improved suspension characteristics when mixed with water
  • More even and consistent application
  • Does not require further mixing
  • Maintains product in suspension longer, preventing it from settling out in the applicator
  • Delivers consistent application across all forage ensiled.

Sachet sizes

MAGNIVA Classic is available in 100 gram sachets, which treat 50 tonnes of fresh forage, and 500 gram sachets, which treat 250 tonnes of fresh forage.

Shelf life

MAGNIVA Classic will remain viable for 24 months from date of manufacture, in original packaging, when stored in a cool (optimal < 4°C) dry place.
