Learn How to Manage Grain

Updated dry grain management publication offers principles of grain storage management that apply to all types of storage.

Looking for more information on what causes grain to go out of condition? Or maybe advice on how to manage grain to prevent storage problems?

If so, a completely rewritten publication, Managing Dry Grain in Storage, is available from MidWest Plan Service (MWPS), headquartered at Iowa State University. Written for farmers, elevator personnel and other managers of stored grain, this publication has the answers you're looking for.

It focuses on cylindrical storage structures (round metal or concrete bins), but offers principles of grain storage management that apply to all types of storage, contained or open, in structures or on the ground. It emphasizes maintenance of grain at initial storage moisture and does not address intentional drying or rewetting of grain.

Managing Dry Grain in Storage, Second Edition, is available from MWPS for $8 plus shipping and handling. Volume discounts are available. The publication, as well as the free MWPS catalog and other low-cost and free MWPS materials, may be ordered on the Web at
