Cereal grains such as wheat, corn, and oats are a great source of energy and nutrients like carbohydrates, protein, vitamin E, B vitamins, magnesium and zinc. Because of this, it’s not surprising that cereals have been a staple in meals, especially breakfast, for many people around the globe in both developed and developing countries. But before cereal grains reach the breakfast bowls of consumers, they undergo crucial post-harvest management. As everything important requires careful handling, cereal grains, too, need an optimal grain storage system.
Producers, handlers, and traders need to be mindful of this to ensure quality. This can be challenging and may require investment, but the benefits are rewarding.
