Storing oilseeds is more difficult than storing cereal grains as they are more susceptible to quality deterioration and have limited insect control options... The decision to store oilseeds requires a planned approach, careful management and a suitable storage system... Moisture content in oilseeds must be lower than cereal grains because the oil content increases the risk of moulding and quality damage...

Principles of aerating grain for cooling and drying.. The system being used, the temperature and relative humidity of the air that is available and the grower"s or system"s ability to select the right air for the targeted grain temperature and moisture content will determine the result... To cool grain, relatively low flow-rates of air at around two litres per second per tonne (L/s/t) are pushed up through the grain stack...

Growers strengthen their position when their storage facilities allow flexibility with grain handling and timing of sales... As a bonus, many of the strategies used to minimise pest problems also significantly improve storage conditions for maintaining grain quality... Examples include: the ability to have fans automatically step through the 3 important stages of aeration cooling - "continuous", "purge", "protected"; an additional auto function that now excludes high humidity air (>85% RH) in all three of these stages; a setting that can be included that adjusts fan operations to cater for fans fitted to silos with air flow rates higher then the standard 2 - 3 L/s/t flow rates...
