why is storage of grains necessary?
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.
