Abstract derived from the Introduction and Literature sections of the thesis: Ensilage as defined by Webster is the material as it appears while being put into the silo. Immediately after the material is stored it begins to undergo physical, chemical and bacterial changes, that continue for about fourteen days, at which time the material is known as silage. Thus silage formation includes all the physical, chemical and bacterial changes which take place in the silo the first fourteen days after being filled. The soope of the investigation reported in this thesis may be considered as an attempt to answer silage processing and preservation questions by experimental methods.
