Grain growers know that there are substantial risks and losses associated with any delay in harvesting once the crop has reached maturity. The cost of contract transport during the harvest period to deliver grain from the paddock to a central receival point is also at peak rates. To counter such expenses and losses, many growers have invested in storage infra-structure to enable to crop to be taken off as soon as practicable, placed into storage and sold directly to the market or delivered to central storage later.

Permanent on-farm storage, however, can be expensive and cost limiting, and farmers need to be sure that a real cost benefit can be achieved before investing in such infrastructure. A low-cost, temporary storage system that provides farmers with an ability to manage their grain harvest better and maintain grain in a safe condition for many months post-harvest, is likely to be a much more attractive option.
