1. The stored grain moisture content will be generally influenced by the temperature and relative humidity of the surrounding environment.

2. Protecting the grain during rainy season when there is high relative humidity in the air is very important it will leads to the grain quality deterioration. 

3. The grain moisture content of paddy stored in jute bags or clay pots will automatically increase in the rainy season to unsafe levels regardless of how well the grain was dried before storage.  

4. Therefore, for long term storage of grain or seed in tropical climates it is crucial to prevent re-wetting of grain by humid air.
