Abstract:

The storage of dry agricultural produce has been known for its importance to the existence and development of human society, for thousands of years. Prolonged storing of cereal grains provides extended food security after harvest, and affords commercial advantage owing to marketing flexibility. In the current global Covid-19 pandemic, supply of grain among countries has become less stable and less safe. As a result, many countries have begun to store produce and to attach more importance for food security. Regardless of the present crisis, many countries' policy is to store food stocks for times of emergency, in order to earn time and breathing space, until a long-term solution is found.

Long-term storage increases risks of damage can occur by abiotic factors, such as extreme temperatures and high humidity; or by biotic factors, such as birds, rodents, insects and molds. The estimated grain loss during storage phase is up to 30% in developing countries, and about 2% in developed countries. Therefore, reducing damage in stored grains is an important factor when dealing with global food crisis, and has a high economic and ecological implication.
