Some harvesting is taking place and with that comes grain storage. How do you make sure that your grain stays in good condition when storing it on farm? Dry it with costly natural gas or propane, run the fans until Christmas, fumigate, pray???
I found this great article from Greg Patterson on Calcium Nutrition in Plants. If there are other crops calcium can improve the quality and longevity of storage why should grain be any different.
A number of our customers have mentioned that grain storage problems have all but disappeared once they started using our products. This is something we will be doing research on in the future.
While I have not run the numbers, if your spending lots of money on drying costs and fumigation, you likely have low plant available calcium. Why not fix you soil, reduce your drying and storage costs and avoid a crop loss due to spoilage.
