crop storage

What should be done to protect crops in storage?


  • Proper Harvesting: Crops should be harvested at the right time when they are matured enough and dry enough to store.

    Cleaning: Before storing crops, they should be properly cleaned to remove debris and any infected or diseased parts.

    Drying: Proper drying is essential before storing. Crops should be dried in the sun or in a well-ventilated area to reduce moisture content.

    Storage Conditions: Crops should be stored in a cool, dry, and well-ventilated environment. Temperature and humidity levels should be controlled to prevent spoilage.

    Proper Packaging: Crops should be stored in appropriate containers such as bags, baskets, or crates that are clean and dry.

    Pest Control: Measures should be taken to control pests such as rodents, insects, and fungi that can damage stored crops. This can be done through the use of insecticides, traps, or other preventive measures.

    Regular Inspection: Crops should be regularly inspected to detect any signs of spoilage, damage, or infestation, and appropriate measures should be taken immediately.
