Bennets Grain Store
Professional storage for professional farmers
Acceptance of Grain
We can only accept assured grain with a grain passport sticker from the customer’s business. (We have to check on the red tractor assurance website).
Each load will be sampled and tested for moisture & specific weight on arrival. We reserve the right to refuse any grain of poor quality which we cannot handle properly.
All samples will be tested in the store’s NIR analyser , which is subscribed to the Openfield national ring check scheme. (We are happy to provide samples for the calibration of farm moisture meters.)

Maximum 16% for conventional storage with low volume ventilation.
Grain above 16% moisture will be accepted for urea, propionic or caustic treatment.
Grain above 16% moisture will be subject to a charge of £5/t and 30p per tonne per 0.1% of moisture to account for treatment costs and shrinkage.
Maximum moisture accepted will be 20%
