$95.00 (inc Tax) $86.36 (exc Tax)

Product Description

Publication date: August 2016 - No. 79

Format: downloadable pdf - 11 pages

Protecting grain in storage is key to preserving quality. While hygiene, monitoring and disinfestation are the best methods of achieving quality preservation in storage, silos that do not seal are difficult to control insects in. Aeration provides a substantial reduction in insect activity by cooling the grain and dramatically slowing the insect lifecycle but will not kill insects. Kondinin Group research engineer and GRDC grain storage extension specialist Ben White looks at grain protectants and what they can offer growers who don’t have access to gas-tight sealed silos.
