Within its general postharvest activities, ACIAR has established a grain storage research program with a specific objective of safe storage of grain. This has been done in response to many requests for assistance in preventing the very substantial losses that are known to occur in the postharvest sector. The program seeks to achieve safe storage by facilitating research on high priority problems, such as grain drying and losses from pests, that have been identified as the major constraints to preserving grain quality after harvest.
