Silo tube

Polydress® FarmTube

Function

Versatile application
With the tubular film Polydress® FarmTube from RKW you can store cash crop such as grain and rape just as reliably as potatoes, manure or brewer's spent grain. Polydress® FarmTube offers reliable and low-loss ensilage of grass, maize and sugar beet chips.

Dry storage
With Polydress® FarmTube you can store cash crops dry and protected even outdoors. The tubular film provides a solution in view of the increasingly unsteady weather and an answer to volatile grain markets which require a fast harvest and reliable storage capacities.

Minimal losses
Only minimal fermentation and storage losses occur in the hermetically sealed film tube. The small cut surface reduces the entry of oxygen and fungal infestation and as a result, only very low losses occur during removal from the silo.

High feed value
Even high-energy press chips can be ensiled in Polydress® FarmTube without silage agents at storage temperatures between 40 and 45 °C. The tube quality of Polydress® FarmTube permits a high compression and thus offers the optimum condition for energy, protein, vitamin and mineral conservation.

Continuous sustainability
RKW has continued to perfect the production technology for its film tubes. Across their entire value added chains – from raw material purchase to manufacture and disposal – the products have been designed under the aspect of sustainability.
