F1 Evo – Maximum preservation of protein quality and nutrients in your silage.
What is F1 Evo?
F1 Evo is a revolutionary biological forage conservation additive.
“Quality home-grown forage is the key to performance and profitability.”
A fast, controlled fermentation using F1 Evo in silage leads to maximum preservation of protein quality and nutritional value. The combination of four homofermentative bacteria in F1 Evo dominate the fermentation process in grass silage to drop the pH fast. Fast fermentation is the key to reduced competition for nutrients and inhibits spoilage organisms.
This is the fastest pH drop by any biological additive that we have ever used!

Lowering pH Levels
Lowering pH levels quickly throughout the silage is essential – lowering the pH levels to 4.5 in under a day will prevent the growth of Listeria and Clostridia which can proliferate fast in untreated silage.
The Key Benefits of treating silage with F1 Evo
F1 Evo offers the following benefits for farmers who wish to increase the quality of their silage:
- Rapidly lowers silage pH level
- Maximise energy retention
- Maximise protein quality
- Inhibit spoilage organisms
- Safe and easy to use
F1 Evo contains selective strains which produce a powerful enzyme to release the potential of your grass.
- Increase sugar production as required
- Will only be triggered as required unlike conventional enzyme products
This is highly efficient as the enzyme is only produced as required in the silage clamp.
TPT® – True Protein Technology
F1 Evo is formulated with TPT® to ensure that the maximum amount of natural protein is retained in the silage.
In trials 17% more true protein was preserved by F1 Evo. The increased level of true protein can reduce the cost of bought-in feed, especially high quality protein sources.
As true protein is broken down in the fermentation it becomes unbound amino acids and finally ammonia.
The increased level of ammonia reduces intakes and increases pH which in turn reduces sugar levels as energy is required to control the rumen acidity.
TPT® reduces the breakdown of true protein. This in turn, will help to maximise animal performance and reduce losses within the clamp.
The TPT® effect is to increase intakes of higher true protein silage whilst minimising losses.
F1 Evo contains variable volume application technology. This allows the product to be applied at a variable rate to suit all applicators.
F1 Evo – Usage Instructions
F1 Evo contains VVA technology for use with all liquid applicators.
Each sachet treats 50 tonnes of forage.
Add the powder to clean cold, water until completely dissolved.
Apply at a rate of 50ml to 2 litres per tonne depending on the applicator.
Use within 3 days of mixing.
Also available: F1 IceGold – Ideal for use on dry grass, wholecrop and maize.
