Description

This 2-page PDF describes silage leachate, why it's important, and how you can deal with it. Silage leachate is liquid that seeps from silage storage structures. Because it is typically very high in nutrients that can harm surface water and groundwater, silage leachate is a worse potential pollutant than manure or sewage. Controlling silage leachate and making sure that it does not enter groundwater or come into contact with surface water is extremely important.
