FARMERS have been warned that storing grain on-farm is not a marketing strategy in itself.

Danny Verbeek, the accumulation manager for Elders Toepfer, the business that is working to bring on-farm storage into the mainstream through its on-farm storage accreditation scheme, said it was not enough simply to store grain post-harvest hoping for a spike in the months after.

“You have to have a strategy prior to storing the grain, it is not enough to just dump the grain on-farm and hope for a rally,” Mr Verbeek said.
