Finally, another indicator that will help you to detect any possible problems with the soybeans stored inside the silos is Lumping and caking.

Lumping and caking indicate a very advanced stage of fungi invasion in soybeans and soybean meal. In metal silos, caking usually occurs on the bin walls as a result of sweating or moisture condensing on the inner surface of the cold bin wall. The condensing moisture is absorbed by the adjacent grains resulting in either sprouting or mold growth.
