        Grain is often harvested at a moisture content that is too high for safe storage. Drying is the most common post-harvest process performed for the long-term preservation of grain (Boumans, , Brooker et al., , Loewer et al., , MWPS, , Ross et al., ).Microflora and insects typically will not grow at equilibrium relative humidities below 65% (Christensen and Kaufmann,   U.S. permanent grain storage capacity to , by type Grain elevators in the U.S. in , by region U.S. off-farm grain storage capacity , by leading states.

        Heating and grain deterioration will occur if the grain exceeds a safe storage moisture content, and grain in a bag cannot be cooled with aeration. The average temperature of dry grain will follow the average outdoor temperature. Selecting an elevated, well-drained site for the storage bags. On-farm grain drying and storage have changed significantly as the capacity of equipment used and the amount of grain being handled and stored on farms have increased, according to North.

The costs of grain storage can be broken into seven different categories, which are listed below: Cost of the storage facility – There are two ways to account for this – 1) general overhead cost of the farming business or 2) cost of the storage enterprise.

Either way is acceptable, Olson said, but just make sure you include that cost someplace. tional storage a virtual necessity and the drying and storage of grain a major activity of many elevators. Grain-storage capacity at elevators in Iowa rose from about million bushels in the late 50's to about million bushels as of January 1, (34).

Grain producers of Iowa have several channels for market­ ing their grains. The availability of storage adds flexibility to a grain marketing program.

Storage enables the producer to use marketing tools that capture seasonal price increases and/or narrower basis levels following harvest. Storage facilities may also increase the rate at which harvesting can be completed by.

Illinois has the capacity to store billion bushels off-farm at facilities, Iowa with billion bushels of storage capacity and facilities, and Kansas with billion bushels at grain storage facilities.

These three states make up 36% of total U.S. off-farm grain storage capacity. Iowa saw the largest increase over the past. Grain storage in Iowa has traditionally included a mixture of off-farm (commercial) storage facilities and on-farm bins.

Figure 3 shows estimates of the total capacity for each type of storage existing in Iowa since The need for storage has varied from year to year, depending on the mix of acres planted to each crop and the yields attained.

Precautions such as these are important to consider when adding or expanding grain handling and storage facilities, he notes. These and other tips have been added to the latest edition of “Grain Drying, Handling and Storage Handbook,” a publication Hellevang co-authored.
