ABSTRACT. Corn for fodder is a problematic material to store because of its high moisture content during harvest that facilitates the development of fungi and mycotoxins. The technological possibilities and profitability of sufficiently rapid and effective drying are also considerations. Consequently, ensiling is recommended as a low-cost, effective preservation method. For this process to proceed correctly, specific, appropriate environmental conditions must be provided, and there are many products on the market that can improve and stabilize ensiling to facilitate better processes and improve the durability of ensiled material. This study examined the suitability of two products that facilitate preserving moist corn and the possibilities of effectively applying this fodder as supplemental feed for carp rearing in low-intensity pond culture.
