Principles of aerating grain for cooling and drying.. The system being used, the temperature and relative humidity of the air that is available and the grower"s or system"s ability to select the right air for the targeted grain temperature and moisture content will determine the result... To cool grain, relatively low flow-rates of air at around two litres per second per tonne (L/s/t) are pushed up through the grain stack...

There is only an extremely small risk of WSMV being spread through seed... Wider row spacings and higher plant populations will result in a more even and shorter flowering period and harvest, due to reduced tillering (Thomas et al 1980)... It is highly likely that plant population should be somewhere in the range 100 to 150 plants/m 2...

There are a number of ways to deal with high-moisture grain - the key is to act quickly and effectively... Cooling before batching: Batch drying (shown ) is one method of dealing with high-moisture grain and aeration cooling in storage can be used to hold grain safely before it can be put through the dryer... Higher airflow rates allow more heat to be added as it will push each drying front through the storage quick enough to avoid over heating the grain close to the aeration ducting...

Storage system comes full circle.. With 20 years of experience in storing grain on his farm at Killarney, Queensland, Rod Petersen can now unload a semi-trailer of grain in about 10 minutes. ".. The little hand conveys the grain into the circle and then the rotating big hand conveys the grain out to the silo you want."..
