Some researchers proposed that: facultatively heterofermentative LAB and enterobacteria were contributors for acetic fermentation and ammonia-N formation, e.g., Lactobacillusplantarum can deaminate serine to produce acetic acid and ammonia-N (LIU et al., 2003; PARVIN & NISHINO, 2009); Alfalfa and ryegrass silage with many Hafnia alvei was vigorous acetic fermentation and had high ammonia-N content (>100g/kg N) (MCDONALD et al., 1991).
