A recombinant Escherichia coli strain carrying a plasmid with an antibiotic resistance marker and expressing the green fluorescent protein was inoculated at a concentration of 3.8 x 10(8) CFU/g into direct-cut wheat (348 g of dry matter kg(-1)), wilted wheat (450 g of dry matter kg(-1)), and corn (375 g of dry matter kg(-1)). The forages were ensiled in mini-silos. The treatments included control (no E. coli added), application of tagged E. coli, and delayed sealing of the inoculated wheat… CONTINUE READING
