Agri-Science Queensland grain storage specialist Philip Burrill says for grain storage, three key factors provide significant gains for both grain storage pest control and grain quality - hygiene, aeration cooling and correct fumigation. ".. By ensuring that machinery and equipment used to handle grain, including headers, augers, field bins, truck bins, silos and other storages are clean to prevent insect pest contamination of newly harvested grain you have a huge head start. ".. In regards to applying protectant insecticides to grain, a number of grain buyers are now requiring that grain and grain products have nil chemical residues, so you should always check with potential buyers and handlers before you treat with commercially available products such as Fenitrothion, Reldan, and IGR. "Do not use any of these chemical insecticides when storing oilseeds or pulses...
