Different storage structures for safe storage of pulses

Different storage structures for safe storage of pulses

Mysore Journal of Agricultural Sciences 23(4): 526-532

Storage structures that could be used at farm level were tested for storage of pulses against beetle, Callosobruchus chinensis (L.). Redgram, Cajanus cajan was stored in one quintal capacity non-permeable, permeable and semi-permeabile structures (metal bin, coalter drum, plywood bin, earthen pot and gunny bag). The performance of non-permeable structures like metal bin and coalter drum was better compared to other structures with reference to deterioration, germination and insect infestation with a loss in weight of 3.2, 4.2, 4.8, 6.3 and 5.0 per cent in metal bin, coalter drum, gunny bag, plywood bin and earthen pot, respectively. However, there was not much difference in moisture migration and temperature gradient among different structures during storage period.
