Storage

The clean seeds should be dried to moisture content below 10-12 % before storage to protect from storage pest and diseases. Seeds should be stored in airtight metallic storage bin for small scale storage. Large silos may be used for large-scale storage of pulses. The important factors affecting the seed storage are temperature and relative humidity. For safe storage, aluminium phosphide tablets  may be kept with grains in storage bin.
