grain aeration

Catalogue: GRDC Media
With harvest in full swing across grain growing regions from Dubbo, NSW to Emerald, Queensland, the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) is delivering a timely reminder on grain storage best practice... "Growers are particularly urged to check maximum residue limits for malting grain destined for human consumption so they don't limit their marketing options," Ms O'Keeffe said... "With many growers in the northern region reporting lower protein levels it will be important to carefully consider the end use of the grain before it goes into storage."..

"With many growers in the northern region reporting lower protein levels it will be important to carefully consider the end use of the grain before it goes into storage.".. She says another decision facing growers during the busy harvest period is the selection of seed grain for next season...

Aeration uses fans and ducting to blow outside (ambient) air through grain... Running fans at the wrong time of the day or during unsuitable weather conditions can rapidly reheat or slowly rewet grain... During aeration drying, fans are designed to force much larger volumes of air through the grain bulk for much longer periods of time to ensure drying fronts are pushed quickly through...

A pilot study at Mingenew, Western Australia, led by Associate Professor Christian Nansen of the University of Western Australia (UWA) shows growers may be compromising seed viability (germination) by storing grain in non-aerated silos... Associate Professor Christian Nansen, from the University of Western Australia, inspects stored grain in front of a seed silo in Mingenew, where trials are underway to assess grain storage systems... PHOTO: Ben White "The study demonstrates the potential that aeration has in areas such as Mingenew, which was previously considered too hot and dry to warrant the installation of cooling fans," he says...

Philip Burrill says the combination of good storage hygiene and grain aeration provides growers with powerful tools to maintain grain quality and reduce pest problems... Grain storage specialists say aeration and pest prevention must remain front of mind for those growers with stored grain from the 2015 harvest and are encouraging growers to check storages regularly to ensure grain quality is maintained... During an address to the Gilgandra and Narrabri Updates, Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF) development agronomist Philip Burrill will outline how the combination of good storage hygiene and grain aeration provides growers with powerful tools to maintain grain quality and reduce pest problems...
