Avoid £20/t Rejections by Reguraly Checking Stores

CHECK STORED cereals regularly to avoid rejections which are costing as much as one-third of the value of the crop this year, advises Glencore Grain’s Hugh Schryver.

The call comes as insect-triggered rejections mount following the wet harvest. The cost of the original delivery, treating rejected grain and delivering back to the buyer can be up to £20/t, he says.

“It is in all our interests to monitor stores regularly,” agrees Banks Cargill’s Richard Whitlock.

 “Rejected loads can cost 5/t at least, before quality claims start to kick in.” Grain storage advice on p46.
