Hearing about grain bin accidents is becoming far too common and it’s important to take proper precautions to ensure safety. Often these accidents occur because a farmer is trying to dislodge spoiled grain, making it critical to develop a plan to properly store grain and keep it in good condition.
The folks at AgWeb offer a couple of tips to consider for keeping your grain in top condition.
1. Don’t store grain when it’s too wet, as this causes it to spoil. Let crops dry down to 15% moisture or below and maintain the level during storage.
2. Proactively monitor grain bins regularly to see if any corn is starting to spoil. Grain can spoil in as little as a few days.
