successful fumigation

Catalogue: GRDC Media
Fumigation in gas-tight storage is the only option for control of grain pest insects at all stages of their life cycle... But successful fumigation requires knowing how much phosphine gas to apply, when to apply it and the length of time needed for an effective kill... The fact sheet has been developed in consultation with grain storage specialists, including Peter Botta, of PCB Consulting, who says that in order to kill eggs, larva, pupa and adult grain pests, phosphine gas needs to reach, and be maintained at, a concentration possible only in a gas-tight storage...

Choose carefully: While all silos are made to store grain and 'do the job', some will enable superior grain quality management than others... In order to meet a ve-minute half-life pressure test, the silo must have: a pressure (oil) relief valve large enough to suit the silo and with gauge markings system to add air to perform a pressure test rubber seals made of high-density EPDM (ethylene-propylene-diene-monomer) rubber with a strong memory and UV resistance...
