Grain growers keen to improve their on-farm grain storage systems are being invited to attend workshops in Victoria over the coming months. Grain storage expert Peter Botta will be presenting and taking questions on a range of issues including pest identification and control; understanding aeration cooling and aeration drying; successful fumigation in gas-tight storage; pest prevention through grain hygiene; and managing the various types of storage, including silos, bags, bunkers and sheds. The Grains Research and Development Corporation-supported workshops will be held at Cowangie on March 27, Murrayville on March 28, Yarrawonga on April 9, Bendigo on April 10 and Maryborough on April 11.
