Abstract

This bulletin is prepared as a guide for policy makers and administrators considering economic and technical improvements to national food-grain storage and distribution. Bulk storage and handling are widely thought to be effective ways to reduce operating costs, including losses, although there are many other reasons for considering change. The text first identifies questions leading to a decision on the feasibility of bulk handling under local conditions. The second part of the text looks for the potential economic and technical advantages of bulk handling over other systems, including upgrading of existing systems.
