Controlled atmosphere storage system for rice

Controlled atmosphere storage system for rice

Paper, American Society of Agricultural Engineers (86-6511): 26

A grain storage technique new to the USA is being used to store rough rice in Arkansas. The technique consists of sealing dried rice at or below approx. 12-13% moisture content in large, flat bunkers. Airtight conditions in the grain mass are achieved by covering the rice with a liner which is practically impermeable to air diffusion. Respiration of grain, insects and microorganisms produces an oxygen-depleted, CO2-enriched atmosphere which inhibits insect and microbiological activity.
