Published: 1 Mar 2012
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.
- 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.
