Abstract

The supplement distinguishes between emergency storage for relief food and bumper crop storage: it critically examines and compares the different systems including traditional methods, cover and plinth (CAP), flexible silos, pits and bunkers. To help users choose the system appropriate to their unique needs, the supplement provides a qualitative method for system selection and indicative costs.
