The Effects of Different Storage Buildings on Wheat Quality

Can Burak Sisman and A. Soner Ergin

The aim of storage is to preserve properties of products and their freshness. If suitable storage conditions are not supplied consistency product variety, quality and quantity losses increase. Decreasing this losses is possible with providing suitable storage condition and storage management. In this study, wheat storage buildings in the Thrace region were examined. Influences of storage condition on product losses were investigated. The study was conducted in one of the Soil Products Office’s (TMO) reinforced concrete silo (RCSi) in Tekirdag, Reinforced Concrete Store (RCSt) and Masonry Stores (MS) in Hayrabolu district within the border of Tekirdag. Temperature of the wheat mass in the stores and moisture content as storage conditions, effective on quality parameters such as hectoliter, gluten, gluten index, sedimentation and sunn pest were monitored during the storage. According to the results of experiments in selected stores, the worst storage conditions and the most quality losses were determined in the MS, on the other hand the most suitable conditions and the least losses were determined in RCSi and RCSt. Consequently, the MS should be improved and aeration systems should be built in this store. This store can be used for shortage storage period. In the RCSi and RCSt stores, the aeration systems should be run properly.
