About Stored Grain

The Grain Storage Extension Project is funded by the GRDC to provide information and training for growers to use best practice for on-farm grain storage.

The project provides a stored grain information hub and equips growers with the skills and knowledge to enable best management practices of on-farm grain storage. Some exciting new resources developed under the current project are the StoredGrain App for smart phones, the development of a Grain Storage GrowNote and the addition of eXtensionAUS Community of Practice.
