According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, almost one-third of the world's food production is lost or wasted each year. A large part of this loss comes from pest issues. Silo fumigation is a great solution for controlling pest infestations in grains, reducing waste. Silo fumigations allow for large amounts of products to be treated at a time for a relatively low cost.
Other benefits of silo fumigation:
In order to be suitable for a fumigation treatment, the silo must meet protocols. Pressure testing ensures that it is "gas-tight" and can hold the fumigant concentrations required to control pests of all life stages. Often, silos are sold as "sealed silos," but aren't actually suitable for fumigation. "Sealed" may simply mean that it keeps rain out. Be sure to have silos inspected every time before fumigation.
