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...

Storing pulses successfully requires a balance between ideal harvest and storage conditions... Harvesting at 14 per cent moisture content captures grain quality and reduces mechanical damage to the seed but requires careful management to avoid deterioration during storage... Pulses stored above 12 per_cent moisture content require aeration cooling to maintain quality...

Sunflower growers can use aeration drying and cooling to successfully manage a range of seed moisture contents (MC) and temperatures during harvest and storage... Cost of drying during the trial, the first small load of harvested sunflower seed delivered into the Kotzur silo was measured at 13.7 per cent MC... Samples were submitted for analysis and the results demonstrated no increase of ffA levels as a result of aeration drying or cooling (see Table 2.) during the aeration drying and cooling trials outlined sunflower seed was sampled before and after storage from all silos...

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...
