Granular Applications For Hay, Silage Inoculants
After being approached by a silage inoculant company about the need for a bigger dry inoculant applicator for silage choppers, Dynamo Company designed two new applicators that mount directly on hay and silage harvesters as well as balers.
  The poly applicators have all stainless steel hardware with variable speed 12-volt auger systems, which the company says fine tunes distribution of dry inoculant for haylage and silage.
  Some growers say the dry inoculants are a good alternative to liquid inoculants, because they're not as hard on belts and other components. Granular inoculants are also easier to use and have an indefinite shelf life, says Dynamo.
  The company's largest applicator, called the Goliath, has the capacity to treat up to 1,000 tons of silage between reloading.
  When installed on a baler it comes with an impeller-style blower. On choppers, a blower is not necessary. Applicators come with a speed control to adjust the rate of application from the cab.
  The "Goliath" applicator sells for $1,810 and the smaller, David model, sells for $1,666. Prices for the baler blower kits are $875 and $575.
