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...
