THE LOW DOWN ON AERATION

THE GRDC recently launched a two-year project to help growers find out more about the benefits and considerations of high flow-rate aeration drying and lower flow-rate aeration cooling.

Project manager Peter Hughes, of Queensland's Department of Primary Industries, said: "The new project will see an extension specialist in each state trained in this field and available to provide the information and contacts growers will need. The experiences of Ian Sole and Brett Roberts (see this page) reflect what can be achieved with this fairly simple and relatively inexpensive technology."
