Storage sector has lost millions

Published: 02/08/2023

The storage sector has lost R267 million over a period of six years. Agbiz Grain has initiated research projects for funding that will focus on genetics on the one hand, and the history of downgrading over the past 15 years on the other. The two projects are complementary.
The storage sector needs to understand the future storage requirements of barley in order to limit risk and improve the sustainability and competitiveness of barley storage. The research will support the ongoing development of the malting barley storage protocol by Agbiz Grain and a review of the current malting barley grading regulations. – Agbiz Grain
