Increased extreme weather conditions and the need for a tough cover

The year 2023 marked a significant milestone in the realm of weather and climate disasters in the United States. According to the latest update from the NOAA National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI), we witnessed a record-breaking 28 weather and climate disasters, surpassing even the notable figures of previous years. These disasters came with a hefty price tag, totaling at least $92.9 billion, emphasizing the urgent need for resilient solutions in agriculture. 

Among the challenges faced by farmers were increased droughts and a deadly heatwave, particularly impacting the central and southern regions of the U.S. As a consequence, the preservation of silage became paramount, ensuring its safety for extended periods, sometimes spanning months or even years. 

In 2023, the country experienced 17 severe weather and hail outbreaks, each causing over $1 billion in damages. Traditionally, farmers relied on steel and concrete upright silos for silage protection. However, the intensification of extreme weather events necessitates a more robust solution. Enter Silostop Complete, a groundbreaking product developed by Silostop in response to these challenges. 

This innovative solution comes at a critical time, especially considering the four flooding events in 2023, inflicting significant damage in California, Florida, and across the eastern and northeastern U.S. Unfortunately, 2024 has already witnessed flooding in California, exacerbating the plight of farmers who are grappling with crop losses. 

Silostop Complete emerges as a game-changer in silage preservation. Unlike conventional plastic films, it boasts unparalleled strength and durability, thanks to its composition of advanced polymers. Coupled with its renowned oxygen barrier technology, Silostop Complete offers farmers the ultimate protection for their silage bunkers or piles. 

Although no plastic is immune to extreme weather conditions, Silostop Complete sets a new standard in resilience. Its thicker, tougher, and more flexible design ensures maximum defense against the elements. For agricultural decision-makers, particularly those in dairy farming, this innovation provides a lifeline in safeguarding precious silage reserves. 

In a landscape where every ton of silage counts, Silostop Complete stands as a beacon of reliability. As the specter of extreme weather looms large, count on Silostop Complete to fortify your silage and secure your livelihood.
