2.8 Storage

The goal of good storage is to be able to deliver grain from store in good quality and with no loss in quantity. This is achieved by preventing the deterioration caused by:

Adverse climatic conditions;

Contamination by extraneous material;

Grain germination; and

Pest infestation.

Ensuring that the storage environment is clean and tidy and in a good state of repair, makes a major contribution to the quality control during storage, but it is insufficient to prevent losses by pests.

Since the introduction of high-yielding varieties, there has been a noticeable shift in the requirements to upgrade storage practices at both the rural and the commercial level. Traditional varieties tend to be resistant to insect damage whereas the hybrids are considerably more vulnerable. This difference in storage stability has raised the profile for appropriate methods for insect control in stored sorghum.

Sorghum can be stored on the panicle or as a threshed grain. At the household level, sorghum grains are kept in a variety of stores for day to day food needs, seed, sale and as insurance against the risk of periodic grain shortages. Where containers are open to air movement, such as open-walled wooded cribs, the panicles may be put in store at 15-16 percentage moisture content. Low relative humidity after harvest ensures that the grain continues to dry while in store. This figure is well above the 12 percentage moisture threshold for safe storage of threshed grain.

Storing grain on the panicle reduces the vulnerability of traditional varieties to pest and mould damage, but takes up a larger space in storage, and unthreshed grain is difficult to protect with insecticides.
