Title: Silage effluent
Author: National Rivers Authority Severn-Trent Region
Document Type: Monograph
This brief National Rivers Authority leaflet provides information about silage effluent. Each year many serious pollution incidents happen because of inadequate containment or disposal of silage effluent. Effluent from ensiled crops is one of the most concentrated pollutants produced on the farm and is at least 100 times stronger than crude sewage. Even small quantities reaching a watercourse can cause significant environmental damage.
