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...

Grain at typical harvest temperatures of 25-30 C and moisture content greater than 13-14 per cent provides ideal conditions for mould and insect growth (see Figure 1)... There are a number of ways to deal with high-moisture grain - the key is to act quickly and effectively... Cooling before batching:Batch drying (shown ) is one method of dealing with high-moisture grain and aeration cooling in storage can be used to hold grain safely before it can be put through the dryer...

Whether storing harvested grain for future marketing or crop planting, key factors to consider are silo hygiene and aeration, insect and pest control, grain quality and economics... The South East Premium Wheat Growers Association (SEPWA) has produced booklets called ' Dealing with a Difficult Harvest ' and ' The WA Guide to High Moisture Harvest Management' and these recommend minimal handling and using cool, aerated conditions when storing sprouted grain... An example of this in WA is the Candeloro family, who store 85 per cent of grain (including wheat, canola and barley) produced annually on their 8000ha Toodyay property in state-of-the-art storage and handling facilities that have a capacity of 38,000 tonnes...

The hybrids only had low to moderate levels of stay-green... When grain moisture is 20 % or less, spraying with glyphosate at the higher label rates should be effective in killing the plant and usually allow for harvest to begin within 10 to 14 days... Lower stay green hybrids sprayed out at the pre 90% black layer with glyphosate may desiccate and harvest a couple of days earlier it is important to note that premature lodging may be induced in this situation within 14 days ...
