More info at www.storedgrain.com.au 0.59: GCTV Ep#13 Sunflower Drying 2.61: Presenter: Philip Burrill - QLD Dept Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry 7.18: In this video we are going to look at some of the aspects of aeration drying... An example say is a Kotzur sixty tonne aeration-drying 45.51: set-up with a three phase seven-point-five kilowatt motor because we are looking for 51.079: much higher air flows for aeration drying... If we look at that example of the sixty tonne 151.239: Kotzur drying silo with the large seven point five kilowatt fan, we placed thirty tones 158.87: of sunflower seed that ranged in moisture from twelve and a half percent at the base 164.689: when we first took off some early part of the sunflower seed, through to about nine 170.879: and a half percent moisture content at the top of the silo...

John piper and his family use a 60-tonne Kotzur drying silo to enable them to harvest over-moisture grain and dry it to end-user specifications... When showers of rain started in March - which went on to total 134 millimetres for the month - the Pipers' elected to harvest what was left of their sorghum at 15 per_cent moisture and hold it under aeration cooling until the grain could be blended or dried... For the 2010-11 winter harvest, John says having the capacity to hold a portion of their wheat under aeration cooling for sale at a later date was beneficial as some wheat and barley crops within the district were penalised heavily due to the suspected presence of fusarium head blight and white grain disorder.

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...

Aeration of stored grain has four main purposes - preventing mould, inhibiting insect development, maintaining seed viability and reducing grain moisture... Without circulation, the air surrounding the grain will reach a moisture (relative humidity) and temperature equilibrium within a few days... Aeration drying using large volumes of air can force a drying front through the grain in storage and slowly remove moisture...

Grain drying and aeration to manage wet grain... Glyphosate is widely used for fallow weed control, particularly on farms using reduced tillage practices... Computer simulations, using a glyphosate resistance model developed by the WAHRI group at UWA, predicted that the probability for ryegrass to develop resistance increased from 0% for conventional wheat system using glyphosate once in fallow to 82% for zero tillage systems with RR crops and greater use of glyphosate...

High moisture grain generates heat when put into a sealed silo, providing ideal conditions for mould and insect growth... The key is to act quickly and effectively to manage the moisture at harvest, and a new fact sheet on Dealing with high-moisture grain has been released by the Grains Research and Development Corporation...
