Improved storage structures

 

 

1. Improved bins: Different organisations developed and designed improved storage structures for scientific storage of foodgrains, which are moisture resistant and rodent-proof. These are: Pusa Kothi , Nanda bins, PKV bins , PAU bins, Hapur Kothi , Chittore stone bins etc. 2. Brick-build godowns: These are made by brick-walls with cemented flooring for storing paddy/rice in bulk and bags. 3. Cement plastered bamboo bin:This bin developed by Post Harvest Technology Centre, Kharagpur, in which bamboo strips are used to form the skeleton of the bin and cement-sand mortar (1:2.5 ratio) is plastered on outer and inner surface of the bin. 4. CAP (Cover and plinth) storage: It is an economical way of storage on a large scale. The plinth is made by cement concrete and bags are staked on open and covered by polythene cover. 5. Silos: Silos are used for storage of foodgrains. These are made from concrete, bricks and metallic materials with loading and unloading equipment.
