|How Crop Saver works - Ingredients|
|Propionic Acid- Buffered so it had a neutral pH avoiding corrosion, yet it is still effective enough to stop the growth of mold and prevent heating|
|Citric Acid- Helps maintain both the fresh smell and green color of hay, even after it’s stored|
|Surfactant- Makes particle size uniform for even dispersing and less risk of under application due to wind drift|

Will Crop Saver ever freeze or breakdown over time?
No. Crop Saver will not freeze as long as the drum or tote is sealed after each use so water cannot mix with the preservative. Crop Saver will also not break down over time. Even if the green color fades, it will not affect the effectiveness of the preservative.
Is Crop Saver considered hazardous?
No. Crop Saver is not considered a hazardous material, so it can be used and transported without any extra requirements.
