insect activity

Catalogue: Broadacre Field Crops DAFF QLD
If insects in grain are left untreated, the grain will, be unsaleable to most buyers, be reduced to dust by the insects feeding on it and go mouldy because of the heat and moisture released by the insects... If insects are detected as grain is outloaded for sale, treatment is likely to delay the delivery by two to four weeks... Key points most markets want grain free from insects and some want freedom from chemical residues, so check with potential buyers before you treat with chemicals clean grain handling and storage equipment and dispose of or treat old infested grain aeration cooling reduces insect activity, but may have to be used with other methods in summer chemical sprays are registered only for cereal grains, not pulses and oilseeds There are no simple short cuts for storing grain safely...

When grain enters storage it needs monitoring, just as a crop does, regularly throughout the growing season... Failure to monitor grain not only increases the risk of damage and loss but can delay delivery if an issue is rst identi ed at out-loading... Grain on the top of the stack is the last to be cooled/dried and is exposed to condensation insects are often found in the top of a storage first and favour damp, warm grain if aeration is operated when ambient relative humidity is above 85% grain moisture content can be increased causing moulding insects can enter a storage through any small opening including outlets and aeration ducts..
