GrowNotes - Grain storage

Published: 7 Mar 2024

On-farm grain storage is a significant component of many Australian cropping operations. Growers who manage their storage facilities and operations create the opportunity to develop preferred-supplier partnerships with key grain traders and to become ‘price makers’ rather than ‘price takers’.

With on-farm grain storage systems a significant investment to set up and manage, growers need to take a strategic approach to planning and managing  it. A strategic development plan for investment in grain storage provides greater opportunity to manage variable production years and crops while ensuring grain quality.

Another key component to storing grain on farm successfully is having the knowledge of best-practice management to avoid costly quality issues and disasters.

'GrowNotes™ - Grain storage' provides information, links to other resources and contacts to enable a base understanding of how to manage on-farm storage successfully.
