PrintPrintSend to friendSend to friend

1. During hot days the grain temperature may rise above 50-60ºC. If that is the case cover the grain at mid-day to prevent over-heating;

2.Cover the grain immediately if it starts raining. Re-wetting of grain causes fissured grains and high grain breakage during milling;

3.Prevent contamination of grain with other materials and keep animals off the grain; and

monitor grain moisture content and grain temperature.
