On-Farm Grain Storage Fumigation Workshop

Doug Johnson, Extension Entomologist
The University of Kentucky Grain Science Working group will be offering a Grain Storage Fumigation Workshop on Tuesday May 13, 2014 from 1:00 PM to 4:30 PM CDT, at the UK-REC in Princeton, KY. This workshop follows the Annual Wheat Field Day that will be held at the center from 8:00 AM to noon the same day. These two programs are complementary, developed by the same working group, but are separate events. Additionally, the Fumigation Workshop will cover all grain crops. Each event will have its own registration and have requested separate pesticide continuing education units (CEU’s).
Successful on-farm grain storage of wheat, corn, soybean and specialty grains has become an increasingly important part of Kentucky’s grain production and marketing sector. However, grain storage also brings with it a completely different set of potential problems compared to the production phase. For example, the group of insect pests is completely different from those farmers see in their production fields. In addition, the cultural and pesticidal knowledge, tools, techniques and equipment needed to prevent, manage, and sometimes remedy insect infestation in grain-storage are very different from those used in grain production. Another important change is that KY on-farm storage facilities have increased greatly in size over recent years.
This program is designed to address practical issues in securing a successful and safe fumigation when the need arises. Fumigation makes use of arguably the most toxic pesticides that grain producers will ever have on their farms. Without question, proper use of these products demands a high priority on safety. In addition, poor use techniques will lead to unsatisfactory results which will only increase the costs and losses in storage. A majority of the presentation will be give by two professional fumigators. See Event Details Listed Below

  1. Thanks for sharing this. We had to get a lot of fumigation work done last year. Knowing this back then actually probably would have saved us a lot of work. Looking forward to applying it this year. Thiago |
