On-farm Grain Storage podcast series – Storage and aeration (1/3)
Host: GRDC | Date: 22 Nov 2023
More about this podcast
From cone and flat-bottomed silos, to sheds, bunkers, bags, and pits, grain storage options today are seemingly endless. It is not always the case that the cheapest option will be the most cost effective over time. Nor will the most expensive always be the most appropriate for your needs.
On top of this, there is the need to keep your grain free from moisture, condensation, mould, and insects, which an aeration system can do by maintaining lower temperatures and consistent conditions. So, when choosing which grain storage option to invest in, where do we begin?
We caught up with Ben White and Chris Warrick from the GRDC Grain Storage Extension Project to find out the starting points around grain storage options, along with the economics of aeration.
