Description: This workshop will provide farmers with practical advice for managing stored grain pests. The workshop is 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. Pesticide recertification points and Certified Crop Adviser points available.
