crop storage

What should be done to protect crops in storage?


  • To protect crops in storage, here are some actions a farmer can take:

    1. Properly dry the crops before storage to reduce moisture content to safe levels
    2. Store the crops in a clean and well-ventilated area
    3. Clean and disinfect the storage area to prevent infestations by pests and rodents
    4. Store the crops in appropriate containers such as bags, bins or silos that are pest-resistant and air-tight
    5. Use appropriate storage techniques such as fumigation or use of organic insecticides to control pests
    6. Regularly inspect the stored crops for signs of spoilage or pest infestations and take appropriate actions such as removing affected crops, adjusting storage conditions or applying appropriate treatments.
