polvere dei cereali


Explanation:
dipende molto dal contesto (e ti pareva!). Innanzitutto se fosse un cereale specifico, l'inglese l'avrebbe detto (wheat, winter wheat, hardy wheat ecc.) Ho l'impressione che grain dust abbia a che vedere con quel feed di prima, che e' composto di "grain" misti . Sono forse venuti a scaricare il feed? Grain e' cereale in generale. I silos ad esempio si chiamano "grain elevator".
