Aeration trials reduce insects and deliver savings.. Trials hosted by the Mingenew Irwin Group (MIG) have demonstrated that aeration can reduce insect burdens by an average of 60 per cent in stored seed grain, and deliver cost savings of about $2 per tonne... The total calculated cost of storing grain in an aerated silo was $11.56/t, compared with costs estimated at $13.50/t for storing grain in non-aerated silos - including the cost of storage and fumigations to control insects, as well as seed losses, based on a seed cost of $300/t...

Bruchids breed rapidly in storage and by the time they are detected, the infested grain is usually unmarketable... Where grain temperatures are above 20 C, bruchid breeding continues unabated but unseen during the winter... While chickpea acid usually protects chickpea pods in the field from attack, bruchids can attack the seed after harvest...

Visiting Chinese researcher Professor Zhaozhi Lu is investigating new stored-grain fumigants for Australian grain destined for China... Visiting Chinese entomologist Professor Zhaozhi Lu is investigating two new strategies that could be used to fumigate Australian grain destined for customers in China... Professor Lu says documenting the efficacy of low-dose treatments would allow China to accept it as a fumigant and would help build confidence in Australian grain quality in the Chinese market...

The prospect of capturing higher grain prices can be tempting but in some circumstances investing large sums of money in on-farm grain storage could prove a costly mistake... "You need to work out exactly how much the storage could earn and compare that to expected returns from other farm business investments such as buying more land, a chaser bin, a wider boomspray, a second truck or paying off debt," Mr Warrick said... The template also contains calculations to work out the fixed costs of on-farm storage such as the annualised capital costs of all of the infrastructure, site works, concrete and equipment, as well as the opportunity cost of capital...
