How many layers are needed for bale wrapping silage?
Ideally, six bale wrap layers are needed for good round bale silage. This ensures that even big heavy bales of silage have optimum protection against rapidly changing climatic extremes, such as times of drought, heavy rain, storms and hail.
What are the consequences and disadvantages of excessively stretching the plastic film during wrapping?
- Reduced film thickness – reduced resistance against puncture
- Poor film bonding – oxygen and moisture can penetrate
- Reduced adhesion – the ends of the film do not stick to the bales
- The opacity of the bale wrap colour is lost
- Loss of UV protection
