Stored Grain Workshops
July 17, 2017 @ 8:30 am - July 20, 2017 @ 2:30 pm
A series of workshops in Alabama will provide farmers with practical advice for managing stored grain pests. The workshops are hosted by the Alabama Cooperative Extension System and sponsored by the Alabama Wheat and Feed Grain Producers. On-farm grain storage facilities help farmers to keep their combines running and to get the best prices for their grain. However, poor storage conditions can reduce grain quality resulting in price discounts that offset potential gains from grain storage. Participants will learn by observing actual grain storage systems, by hands-on demonstrations, and by interacting with stored grain experts from Auburn University, the University of Georgia, Oklahoma State University, and industry. Topics include stored grain pest biology, moisture management, temperature management, bin monitoring systems, sanitation, and chemical control. The one-day workshop will be conducted near Headland (July 17), and then repeated in Atmore (July 18), Marion Junction (July 19), and Madison (July 20).
