Code: 9781786767615
Michelle A. Friedmann and Dirk E. Maier, Iowa State University, USA

Chapter synopsis: This chapter reviews key research and best practice on the design and construction of silos, horizontal building structures and on-the-ground piles as methods of bulk grain storage. The chapter also discusses the range of preventative strategies for preserving grain quality (such as sealing and aeration) as well as intervention techniques such as gas fumigation, modified atmosphere, ozone and cold plasma treatments. Finally, it summarises key best management practices such as SLAM (Sanitation, Loading, Aeration and Monitoring) and DICE (Dry Grain, Inspect, Clean and Examine).
