Grain research shows aeration cooling to boost grain quality

 

 

According to the Grains Research & Development Corporation, aeration cooling for on-farm grain storages could enhance the quality of grain in so many ways.

 

However, the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) is concerned that growers are either unaware of its full scope of benefits, or confused about some of its uses. They are surprised to discover many grain farmers are yet to embrace this technology.

 

GRDC is continuing its efforts to encourage best practice for grain growers storing grain on-farm, and is working with grain storage expert Peter Botta.

 

Botta says aeration cooling is about maintaining quality and controlling insect pests during harvest and storage, but growers often get aeration cooling confused with aeration drying.
