Successful storage in grain bags fact sheet

Bulk grain bags, also known as Silo Bags, can be a handy harvest storage option if used properly. A planned approach with careful management is essential.

Key Points

  • Grain bags are best suited for short-term, high-volume grains to assist with harvest logistics.
  • Site planning and preparation is the first and most important step for successful storage.
  • Bulk grain bags are a higher risk form of storage compared with silos — requiring experience and best management practice.
  • Inspecting grain bags weekly, or more frequently, and patching holes will reduce the chance of spoilt grain from moisture or pests.
