aeration system

Catalogue: GRDC Factsheets
Aerating grain in storage creates cool, uniform moisture conditions throughout the grain bulk... A simple device called an 'A-Flow' has been developed to measure the air-flow rate of an aeration system to check its performance... A simple calculation can then determine the volume of air (cubic metres or litres per second) the aeration fan is pushing into the grain storage...

Protection, aeration and hygiene are the three critical aspects of successfully storing grains on-farm, grain storage expert Peter Botta says... "With harvest approaching, it is a timely reminder for growers looking to optimise grain quality and manage risk to get their storage systems in order," he says... A second benefit of aeration systems is their potential to minimise risks of rain during harvest, particularly given it may not be economic for growers to invest in a grain dryer on the off-chance of a wet harvest...

Remove food sources so insect numbers do not build up: mow or spray grass weeds; remove rubbish, such as pieces of tin on the ground; bury or burn grain spills; and clean out all machinery...
