aerated silo

Catalogue: GRDC Media
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...

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...
