Another of the indicators that will help you to detect any possible problems with the products storage inside the silo is the mustiness and off-odor condition.

Musty odor usually indicates an advanced stage of insect or mold infestation and should be dealt with immediately.

What to do when it happens:

  • The soybeans should be aerated to remove the bad odor and cool the material. Beans should then be used at the earliest opportunity.
  • The grain should be fumigated immediately if insects are present. A sharp odor may indicate rancidity due to chemical changes in the oil component.
