Storage of Grains and Their Products, Fifth Edition, presents the most authoritative reference on the principles and practices of storing and handling grains and their products. Divided into four main sections, the book covers the range of storage systems available in both the developed and developing world, the practicalities of the design and implementation of grain storage systems, looking in detail at handling, cleaning, drying, aeration, instrumentation amongst other topics, specific threats to stored grains, pulses, oils and pseudocereals from chemicals, rodents, insects and biosecurity, and the economics of grain storage, government regulations and future considerations.
Professionals responsible for the storage and handling of grains will find this book a great resource, however, it will also be of interest to academic researchers and postgraduate students in both cereal science and food processing.

  • Presents an up-to-date, end-to-end overview of the processing and storage of grain and grain related products
  • Includes eleven new chapters that provide the latest insights into grain storage
  • Edited by active cereals researchers working in industry, with experts from both academia and industry supplying chapters
  • Includes essential information on the design and operation of grain facilities
  • Provides coverage of the preservation of grain quality against specific threats
