why is storage of grain necessary?

Asked by Kanhaiya 7th September 2015, 6:29 PM
Answered by Expert


Hi Kanhaiya,

It is important to store grains because of the following reasons:

  • High temperature and high moisture affect grain quality and can cause rapid decline in germination, colour, oil composition, and many other characteristics of grains.
  • Insects and fungus impair the quality of grains directly by their feeding and development, and indirectly by generating heat and moisture.  
  • High temperature and moisture favour development of insects and moulds.
