According to Kepler Weber, one of the leading companies in grain storage system, the world’s third-largest grain producer Brazil has 70 million tons of grain storage deficit.

brezilya-tahilOne of the important issues to ensure food security is to avoid grain wastage due to the lack of adequate silos, poorly cleaned facilities, poor grain drying and inadequate transport. Storage of the grain is as significant as producing and processing of the grains. Grains should be kept without deterioration of quality. At this point, experts point out that countries must have enough storage capacity to avoid grain waste due to the lack of adequate silos, poorly cleaned facilities, poor grain drying and inadequate transport.

The UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) recommends that a country’s storage capacity should be equal to 1.2 times its annual agricultural production. However, Brazil, the third largest grain producer in the world and the second largest exporter after the United States, is deficient in grain storage capacity. According to Kepler Weber, one of the leading companies in grain storage and storage systems, Brazil has 70 million tons of grain storage deficit when FAO’s recommendations are taken into account.
