Managing Dry Grain in Storage, Second Edition (AED-20), explains what causes grain to go out of condition and tells how to manage grain to prevent storage problems. It focuses on cylindrical storage structure but offers principles of grain storage management that apply to all types of storage, contained or open, in structures or on the ground. It emphasizes maintenance of grain at initial storage moisture and does not address intentional drying or rewetting of grain (2004, 24 pp., 8 ½ x 11, illustrated, self-cover, AED-20, $8.00 plus shipping/handling).
