Kernow Grain was established on a green field site in 1998 and now has a 18,000t storage capacity with the potential for further cost effective expansion.
Storage is silo based with 20 silos for storing a wide variety of crops.
The store runs two continuous flow driers each with a 45t/hour capacity. Full cleaning and grading facilities are also available, including a four-screen rotary drum grader. All grain is fully analysed on intake.
Moisture, nitrogen, protein and oil contents are measured using an Infratec analyser calibrated and continuously checked as part of a testing 'ring'.
Grain is then held in ventilated silos before pre-cleaning prior to drying and storage.
Grain temperatures are carefully monitored throughout storage and managed using forced air ventilation.
