      The dry grain is usually stored in solid-walled silos or bins built with local materials or cement. If the grain is to be used for daily consumption and is initially dry and insect free, the use of insecticides is often not cost effective or necessary, as storage time will probably not exceed six Transportation off the farm After grain is harvested (and possibly stored on-farm after the harvest), it is most often transported by truck to a nearby country elevator. If the farmer elects to sell his grain directly after harvest, it is necessary for him to coordinate the loading and driving of trucks from the farm to the country  › 百度文库 › 语言/资格考试.

While greater than thirty species of storage pests can attack grain stored in the northwest of the United States, seldom do more than a few species reach economic levels in ://:Introduction_-_Stored_Grain_Pests. Despite the lack of fumigation, there was no increase in insect population during the trial.

In many developing countries, grain is stored in sacks rather than in bulk storage. Sealed sacks can be used to control the moisture and composition of the included atmosphere inside the sack, for maintaining the grain quality (Gras et al., ).

• Work towards building a reputation as a grower with on-farm storage, who can consistently supply pest-free grain that meets buyers’ quality specifications.

• Talk with grain buyers regularly to keep up-to-date with grain market trends and to know what grain qualities are in demand.

A food grain storage system is an artificial ecological system in Maintaining insect-free farm-stored grain book deterioration of the stored product results from interactions among physical (e.g.

temperature, moisture, storage structure), chemical (e.g. carbon dioxide, oxygen) and biological (e.g. grain characteristics, microorganisms, insects, mites, rodents, birds) factors (Jayas and White, ).

There is some disagreement on the best storage temperature for grain over the summer. The old-school recommendation was to warm the grain to within 10° to 15° of the outside temperature. For the last 20 years, the recommendation has been to keep the grain cool, about 40°F., during spring and summer.

Some are now suggesting warming the grain Sanitation in and around stored grain installations is the almost efficacious and profitable administration exercise to prevent insect infestations in stored grain. This is the most essential IPM practice for storing and protecting grain because a successful sanitation is ?aid= growth and insect activity were % of the stored products.

As a result, these losses and spoilage can only be reduced by suitable storage conditions and storage management (Cloud & Morey, ).

This unique book is written specifically for those in grain operations and addresses the full range of topics related to maintaining the quality of grain stored on the commercial scale.

It demonstrates how science-based information can be incorporated into grain storage operations to increase efficiency and decrease the risk of grain ?iProductCode=   The objectives of the present work are to (a) evaluate the network structure for stored-wheat rail transport in the United States and Queensland, (b) identify critical control points for the sampling and mitigation of contaminants moving through these stored-grain networks, (c) illustrate the potential for stored-grain systems as models for basic ecology and network analyses, and (d) provide a Grain storage loss is a major contributor to post-harvest losses and is one of the main causes of food insecurity for smallholder farmers in developing countries.
