Airtight storage of grain in bins

Airtight storage of grain in bins

KTBL Schrift, Kuratorium fur Technik und Bauwesen in der Landwirtschaft eV German Federal Re ic (312): 115-119

It is possible to store moist grain (approx. 20% moisture content) for feed in airtight bins without chemical additives, provided the grain is first crushed. It is recommended that 85% of the particles should pass through a 1mm screen. Grain should be quickly loaded, carefully compressed and covered to ensure optimum quality. If doubts exist regarding the quality, preservatives should be used.
