Effluent warning

TAKE care with silage effluent, warns the Environment Agency.

The EAs Geoff Bateman urges silage makers to ensure silos and effluent tanks are in good condition and to wilt silage to over 25% dry matter when possible. He also advises checking effluent channels each day and emptying effluent tanks regularly, especially in the first few days after clamping.
