Nuffield Scholar for 2015 Andrew Freeth says on farm storage is a growing trend in the grains industry.

GRAIN growers considering an investment in on farm storage options should establish clear goals, consider future needs and plan with potential expansion in mind so as to maximise value, says a new Nuffield report released by 2015 Scholar Andrew Freeth.

 Mr Freeth works on his family’s 5500-hectare dryland broadacre cropping and livestock enterprise near Gilgandra, New South Wales, and has spent the past two years studying effective on-farm grains storage and supply chain logistics from around the world.

 Funded by the Grains Research and Development Corporation, Mr Freeth’s report has unveiled a suite of recommendations for moving grain to market in an efficient, cost-effective manner, while considering future trends affecting the industry.
