Grain storage makes sense! Be it to gradually feed part of the harvest to your own animals. Be it to get better prices on sales. Or to be able to flexibly absorb all harvest quantities during the harvest season and to be able to store them temporarily regardless of trade and existing logistics. More and more farmers are storing their harvests in order to effectively counter grain price fluctuations on the market.
Value preservation by use of professional SilOs
However, if you want to store your grain harvest as loss-free as possible, you have to consider a few things. Because what uses the best harvest when only a part of it is spoiled during storage. According to the BMEL (Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture), an average of at least 2 % of grain lost is depending on storage system. This is almost 700,000 tons only in Germany – based on the production volume in 2018 (34.6 million tons) – which at a value of € 170 per ton of grain € 119 million equivalent. On average, one person consumes 77.5 kg of grain. Based on these statistics, we could provide about 9 million people per year with wheat which spoiled only by insects.
Minimize losses during storage
Farmers are also responsible for the quality of their products. The Product Liability Act also applies to sale of grain, consequently the farmer is also liable for damage which are caused by faulty goods (as well as the animal origin products produced with them), or not caused through his own fault.
The goal of storage must; therefore, getting a perfect, dry, non-wetted and pest-free product! are required storage facilities that:
- To be stable, waterproof, insulated and corrosion-resistant;
- Ensures high hygienic standard: by the walls are smooth and scrack-free, thus forming an easy-to-clean Surface;
- Rodent and bird density to exclude contamination by animal excrement;
- Include humidity and temperature; monitoring. Grain should be stored at a temperature around 14° C and maximum moisture 14%, thus the possible storage time can be increased fivefold. Rising temperatures in the stored goods indicate an infestation by beetles, mites or mold. The temperature should therefore be checked continuously. This also applies to moisture, because of pests can hardly propagate at a temperature below 13°C;
- Enable to regulate humidity and temperature. To do this, it must be possible to ventilate each grain store. Appropriate systems are available for all storage options. Drying is also a reasonable measure if the moisture level is high.
