Silo Bags Help Reduce Post-Harvest Losses
If you are invested in farming or other business dealing with agricultural pulse, grain, or crop production, you are thoroughly aware of the challenges that it carries with the storage of grains and crops for a long period. To help farmers and business owners overcome this challenge and reduce their post-harvest losses Rishi FIBC brings you Silo bags, the perfect solution for storing your crops and agricultural production.
Let’s look at what is Silo bag and how it can help reduce post-harvest losses!
What are Silo Bags?
At Rishi FIBC we call our Silo bags, PRO7, because they are made of seven layers of Blown extruded technology. Our PRO 7 Silo bags are storage bags manufactured from polythene and hence popularly referred to as polythene bags as well. These bags are manufactured from seven layers of Blown extruded technology with various polymers which provide a total thickness of 180 – 250 microns. The outer layer of the bag is usually white to reflect solar radiation. On the other hand, the inner layer of the bag is black to block sunlight. The diameter of these silo bags varies from 8-10 feet and Length of 60 m, 75 m up to 90 m, produced as per the requirement of the client. The silo bags serve the great purpose of effective storage thereby finding a wide range of applications. The silo bags have gained a lot of importance in recent times. These bags are readily used for storing grains and other agricultural production, clearly reflecting the large variety of applications it can contribute to.
Now that we have a clear idea of what Silo bags are, let’s walk you through Silo Bags can help in reducing post-harvest losses.
Functions of Silo Bags
Silo bags can be used for grain storage regularly, but some of the important ways Silo bags can protect these post-harvest losses through storage are reflected below:
Prevents crops from Fungus and Insects
Pro 7 Silo Bags should be sealed when grains and other agricultural materials are filled. Thus, the available oxygen inside the bag is consumed by the grains and then produces an atmosphere rich with Co2. This in turn prevents the development and reproduction of fungi and Insects inside the Silo Bag. This makes them an ideal protective option for agriculture products with the process of storage.
Helps Expel Carbon Dioxide to Protect the Product
The PRO 7 silo bags are airtight sealed once the agricultural products have been bagged. This in turn creates a limited supply of oxygen environment within the bags. Anything alive (insects, bacteria, the grain) consumes the limited oxygen in the bag and expels carbon dioxide, which in turn keeps the grains healthy with intact quality for a longer period while preventing it from all possible fungi and insects.
Contributes to creating an anaerobic environment
With the usage of PRO 7 Silo bags usually, within 10 days, the oxygen volume in the bag drops from 20% to 3% and CO2 volume rises from 0% to 17%. Thus, the bag will become anaerobic and be free from FUNGUS and INSECTS, without any additional cost.
Prevents Products from Sunlight
The PRO 7 Silo bag is made with the outer layer of the bag white in color to reflect solar radiation. On the other hand, the inner layer of the bag is black to block sunlight from entering the bag, thus creating a cooler temperature inside the bag to prevent the crops from sunlight.
Helps grain storage for a long period
The PRO 7 silo bag creates a colder preserving atmosphere for the grains and agricultural products stored in them. This is done by the usage of black paint for the inner layer of the bags, which in turn helps preserve the crops for a long period. This makes the PRO 7 Silo bags ideal for long time preservation of agricultural products.
Protect product from rainfall
If you carry out business in a region with higher rainfall, then PRO 7 Silo bags can be a great application for storage. Since the bags are made up of polymers it will protect the stored grains and agricultural products from water damage by rainfall.
These functions reflect how PRO 7 silo bags can contribute to your agricultural business, making it ideally the need of the hour in the farming industry to prevent post-harvest losses. So, if you are into business dealing with agricultural products, then PRO 7 silo bags are just the itinerary your business requires.
