Why Farmers Should Invest in On-Farm Grain Storage

One of the most significant aspects of a grain farmer is whether they have on-site storage capabilities like grain bins and silos. Building these facilities is a significant cost, but below, we explain why every farmer should consider investing in on-farm grain storage and the value the facilities offer.

Eliminate Grain Elevator Fees

The alternative to on-site grain storage for farmers is to pay to store it at a communal grain elevator along with other farmers. The grain elevator stores the grain and keeps it dry and secure. While grain elevators can be affordable initially, they do charge many fees to farmers, from transaction to handling to dryer fees.

These fees may seem affordable at first, but they can quickly add up, and after so many years, they can negatively impact a grain farmer’s profit margins and expansion capability. Investing in on-farm grain storage facilities is the better value long-term as it eliminates these expenses and gives farmers more direct control over how their grain is stored and handled.

Reduce Trucking Expenses

Another annoying expense that comes with storing grain off-site is trucking fees. Renting trucks, hiring drivers, and paying for gas quickly adds up to a lot of money and leaves farmers’ profits at the mercy of gas prices—which are notoriously unpredictable.

It’s also common for delivery trucks to be delayed for any number of reasons that affect all drivers—road closures from construction, weather issues, and traffic. With an on-farm storage facility and receiving systems, trucking expenses are dramatically reduced as the only transport needed is from the fields to the farm.

Get Government Help

The most significant barrier to farmers is that a lot of money and resources are required to establish on-farm grain storage, but there are also government programs to help reduce the burden of this investment. The Farm Storage Facility Loan Program provides low-interest financing for farmers to build or upgrade permanent commodity storage facilities like grain bins and silos.

The government understands the benefits these facilities provide farmers and that because they benefit farmers, they benefit everyone in getting affordable and quality food products. Farmers can obtain up to $500,000 worth of loans toward new grain storage facilities.

Conclusion

Obviously, investing in new grain bins and silos is not a small investment, but the advantages are clear when you take a step back and look at the big-picture value. From saving money on grain elevator and trucking fees to low-interest loans, farmers have every reason to invest in their grain storage capabilities.

A top United Nations humanitarian official in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), today (20 Feb) said, that the humanitarian situation in the country has “sadly worsened on various fronts”, adding “the crisis in the DRC is one of the most severe, complex, prolonged, protracted and neglected in the world.” Briefing journalists from Kinshasa via link, Bruno Lemarquis, who is the Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator, at the UN Stabilization Mission in the DRC (MONUSCO), said, “The resurgence of hostility in eastern DRC, especially in North Kivu, is deeply concerning, and violent clashes between the group called M23 and the Congolese armed forces, FARDC in acronym, have intensified, leading to severe humanitarian consequences and displacement.” Lemarquis said that the country is also currently affected by the very severe floods “affecting 2 million people and many provinces across the country, with the Congo River at its highest level since 1961,” He continued, “gender-based violence, sexual violence, has reached a dramatic level, with nearly 110,000 cases reported in 2023, which is probably the tip of the iceberg.” Commenting MONUSCO withdrawal, he said that the mission “is the protection of civilians at the heart of its mandate, and the significant logistical and security capabilities.” He concluded, “its gradual departure will certainly have an impact on humanitarian operations, especially in terms of access.” MONUSCO, established in July 2010 has been authorized to use all necessary means to carry out its mandate relating, among other things, to the protection of civilians, humanitarian personnel and human rights defenders under imminent threat of physical violence and to support the Government of the DRC in its stabilization and peace consolidation efforts. MONUSCO will completely withdraw from the country by the end of 2024.

Highlights: -Occupied Palestinian Territory -Deputy Secretary-General -Central Emergency Response Fund -Sudan -The Sahel -Ukraine -Papua New Guinea -Resident Coordinator Announcement -Day Of Social Justice OCCUPIED PALESTINIAN TERRITORY First, I’ll start with the situation in Gaza. The World Health Organization said today that it has led two life-saving missions to transfer 32 critical patients, including two children, from Nasser Medical Complex in southern Gaza on 18 and 19 February – that was yesterday and the day before – this is of course, amid ongoing hostilities and access restrictions. The high-risk missions were conducted in close partnership with the Palestine Red Crescent Society and the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs. The team also provided limited supplies of essential medicines and food for the remaining patients and staff who are otherwise being cut off from aid. Four Palestine Red Crescent ambulances ensured the safe transportation of the patients, who underwent medical assessment and triage under the coordination of the hospital director. Nasser Hospital has no electricity or running water, and medical waste and garbage are creating a breeding ground for diseases. WHO staff said the destruction around the hospital was ‘indescribable.’ The area was surrounded by burnt and destroyed buildings and heavy layers of debris, with no stretch of intact road. An estimated 130 sick and injured patients and at least 15 doctors and nurses remain inside the hospital. WHO fears for the safety and well-being of the patients and health workers who are remaining in the hospital and warns that further disruption to lifesaving care for the sick and injured would lead to more deaths. In a statement issued today, the World Food Programme said it is pausing its deliveries of food aid to northern Gaza until conditions are in place that allow for safe distributions of that aid. The decision to pause deliveries to the north of the Gaza Strip has not been taken lightly, as we know it means the situation there will deteriorate further and more people risk dying of hunger. The World Food Programme is deeply committed to urgently reaching desperate people across Gaza but the safety and security to deliver critical food aid - and for the people receiving it - must be ensured. Meanwhile, the Humanitarian Coordinator, Jamie McGoldrick, has wrapped up a visit to Gaza. Today, he visited the Kerem Shalom crossing and the Rafah crossings and saw first-hand the challenges there to getting more humanitarian aid into the Gaza strip. Yesterday, the World Health Organization along with UNICEF and the World Food Programme, issued results of a new analysis that shows a steep rise in malnutrition among children and pregnant and breastfeeding women in the Gaza Strip. The report, “Nutrition Vulnerability and Situation Analysis – in Gaza,” finds that the situation is particularly extreme in the Northern Gaza Strip, which has been almost completely cut off from aid for weeks. Nutrition screenings conducted at shelters and health centres in the north found that 15.6 per cent – or one in six children under the age of two – are acutely malnourished. Of these, almost 3 per cent suffer from severe wasting, which is the most severe form of malnutrition. DEPUTY SECRETARY-GENERAL The Deputy Secretary-General is in Bangkok. Amina Mohammed, alongside Parnpree Bahiddha-Nukara, the Thai Foreign Minister as well as the Executive Secretary of ESCAP, that’s the UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific, and that’s Armida Salsiah Alisjahbana, the three of them opened the Asia Pacific Regional Forum for Sustainable Development. In her remarks, the Deputy Secretary-General stressed the need to continue to strive towards the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals and fulfilling the vision of the 2030 Agenda. She highlighted that the Asia-Pacific region has demonstrated how a long-term vision can be transformed into reality, adding that more progress is possible if we mobilize at speed and at scale, and if we work together. The Deputy Secretary-General, then met with the Prime Minister of Thailand, Srettha Thavisin. They discussed Thailand’s commitment to accelerating SDG implementation, including targeted action towards the triple planetary crisis. She underscored the UN’s commitment to supporting the Government in these efforts. And on the sidelines of the event, Ms. Mohammed also met with Woochong Um, Managing Director General of the Asian Development Bank to discuss actions for the delivery of the SDG Stimulus and reform of the international financial architecture. She is now on her way to Brazil, to participate, on behalf of the Secretary-General, in the G20 Foreign Ministers meeting.

The El Niño weather phenomenon contributed to a severe drought, the ACP said. It is expected to increase the cost of shipping goods around the world. The Panama Canal greatly reduces the time and distance for ships to travel between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.

The test firing of a Trident missile from a Royal Navy submarine has failed, for the second time in a row. The latest test of the UK's nuclear deterrent was from HMS Vanguard and was witnessed by the defence secretary. The missile's booster rockets failed and it landed in the sea close to the launch site, according to the Sun, which first reported the malfunction. When on patrol, missiles would usually carry nuclear warheads but they are not fitted for test fires. The Ministry of Defence said the "nuclear deterrent remains safe, secure and effective". This is highly embarrassing for both the UK and the US manufacturer of the Trident missile.

Two political parties in Pakistan have reached a formal agreement to form a new government following an election mired in controversy. The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PMLN) will be backed by the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) in a new administration, they jointly announced. The agreement means former Prime Minister and President of PMLN Shahbaz Sharif is on course to become prime minister for a second time with the backing of the junior coalition partner, while Asif Ali Zardari of the PPP will be the coalition's candidate to become president - an office he has previously held. Both parties won fewer seats than candidates loyal to jailed former Prime Minister Imran Khan on 8 February. Mr Khan’s movement alleges the vote was rigged to keep his supporters out of power.

A man shot dead in Spain is believed to be a Russian military helicopter pilot who defected to Ukraine in 2023. Maxim Kuzminov flew a Russian helicopter into Ukrainian territory, where he handed himself in. Spanish police have not publicly confirmed the identity of the man, who was shot multiple times near Alicante last week. However Ukrainian intelligence confirmed Mr Kuzminov's death. A burnt-out car apparently used by the attackers was found near the scene. Mr Kuzminov reportedly contacted the Ukrainian secret service to inform them of his decision to defect in 2023. He then flew his Mi-8 helicopter over the border and landed in eastern Ukraine in August. At a news conference in Ukraine, Mr Kuzminov said he switched sides because he opposed Russia's war in Ukraine. He also said that Ukraine had promised him $500,000 in payment, along with new identity documents and protection for his family. Sophie Raworth presents BBC News at Ten reporting by Nick Eardley.

Yemen's Houthi rebels released this footage of what they describe to be the destruction of a U.S. MQ-9 Reaper drone. The drone was brought down by a surface-to-air missile off the coast of Hodeida, a Yemeni port city on the Red Sea held by the Houthis. The footage also included video of men dragging pieces of debris from the water onto a beach. Images of the debris, which included writing in English and what appeared to be electrical equipment, appeared to correspond to known pieces of the Reaper, which can be used in both attack missions and surveillance flights. In November, the Pentagon acknowledged the loss of an MQ-9, also shot down by the rebels over the Red Sea.

Could this midnight convoy be transporting Alexei Navalny’s body? An independent Russian news outlet obtained footage of this convoy leaving Navalny’s prison hours after his death. Navalny’s wife Yulia Navalnaya believes Russian authorities are keeping family away from his body to conceal evidence of poisoning. Navalny was poisoned with the deadly ‘Novichok’ nerve agent in 2020, in a suspected attack by the Russian state. Yulia Navalnaya says she will reveal the identities of her husband’s killers. Since Navalny’s death his family, including his mother Lyudmila Navalnaya have been refused access to his body. One of Russia’s most prominent opposition politicians, Navalny has been in detention since he was arrested in 2021. He was being held at the the ‘IK-6’ facility in Russia’s far north, beyond the Arctic Circle, infamous for the alleged abuse of inmates. Navalny’s death has sparked protests and memorials across the world. In Russia, people continue to lay flowers in cities across the country in Navalny’s memory. But Russian authorities were seen destroying the memorials overnight and have continued to arrest protesters. It’s thought around 300 protesters are now in detention across the country. It has now been reported that a senior prison official accused of torturing Navalny was promoted on Monday. Valery Boyarinev was apparently promoted to the rank of Colonel General by Vladimir Putin just three days after Navalny’s death. #russia #navalny #ukraine Subscribe here: http://bit.ly/ODNsubs TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@ondemandnews Twitter: https://twitter.com/ODN Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ODN/ If you wish to purchase any of our clips for commercial use, please visit: http://www.itnproductions.co.uk/news/

This is the moment a Ukrainian vehicle is hit while withdrawing from Avdiivka. The soldiers inside the vehicle survive the explosion and go on to fire back through the rear door. After months of hard fighting, Avdiivka has now fallen to Russian forces. The town is located in the Donetsk region of Ukraine. Footage shows Russian strikes on the large coke plant in the north of the town. The plant was one of the last Ukrainian military holdouts before it withdrew. Another video apparently shows the strikes from the perspective of the Ukrainian soldiers inside. Russia claims that the Ukrainian withdrawal was rushed and chaotic. Ukraine says its withdrawal was well-organised and successful despite coming under fire. Elite Ukrainian military units pushed back into Avdiivka to create an evacuation corridor. Russian flags are now flying in Avdiivka, but Ukraine claims Russia suffered more than 40,000 casualties taking the town.But the town is still not completely safe for the occupying forces, with mines and boobytraps left behind in the ruins. Ukraine has blamed the loss on a lack of weapons and ammunition, when compared to their Russian attackers. There is a particular shortage of long-range weaponry, that had previously been provided by Ukraine’s Western allies. The loss of Avdiivka may be a largely symbolic defeat for Ukraine. But there are fears that a prolonged shortage of weaponry could leave Ukraine vulnerable to further Russian advances. #ukraine #russia #ukrainewar Subscribe here: http://bit.ly/ODNsubs TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@ondemandnews Twitter: https://twitter.com/ODN Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ODN/ If you wish to purchase any of our clips for commercial use, please visit: http://www.itnproductions.co.uk/news/

Play Video: Malawi's battle against malaria - fighting misinformation and mistrust


Almost every minute a child dies with malaria - a disease that's entirely treatable and preventable. There’s a global strategy to eradicate it by 2030, and helping that fight is a groundbreaking new vaccine. Malawi was one of three trial countries to receive it and it's helped reduce child deaths there by 13 percent. But there are still barriers to overcome - with some churches preaching that medicine is the work of the devil.

They include Joaquin Oliver, who was murdered in the hallway outside his classroom at Parkland aged 17.

Israeli forces have stormed southern Gaza's main hospital - they claim to be searching for the bodies of hostages. The military called the raid on Nasser Hospital "precise and limited". But footage showed panic, chaos, smoke and the sound of heavy gunfire, and doctors say several patients were injured and at least one was killed. A warning, this report is distressing.

It's a well-known true story of extreme survival: the plane that took off from Montevideo in Uruguay in October 1972 on its way to Santiago in Chile. On board - 45 people, including a rugby team. (Subscribe: https://bit.ly/C4_News_Subscribe) They never got to play their match because the plane crashed into the Andes - one of the most hostile environments on the planet. Those who survived the impact were forced to take extreme measures to stay alive, including eating the bodies of those who'd died. After two and a half months, 16 people were rescued alive. A new film based on the story called 'Society of the Snow' has been nominated for a BAFTA and an Oscar. I spoke to its director Juan Antonio Bayona, and began by asking how the actors relived the disaster that unfolded. ----------------------- Follow us: Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/Channel4News/ Twitter - https://twitter.com/Channel4News TikTok - https://www.tiktok.com/@c4news Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/channel4news/
