Abstract

Abstract

Storage tests were conducted on farmers stock peanuts during three seasons. The peanuts were aerated with 1/20 and 1/10 cubic feet per minute (cfm) of air per cubic foot of peanuts when the incoming air was within certain ranges of relative humidity. The aeration was beneficial in maintaining the desired peanut moisture content level and in preserving desirable milling characteristics. Attempts to maintain a lower temperature within the peanuts were unsuccessful. Peanuts near the bin walls and in the top layers had higher average temperatures, lower final moisture content levels, lower germination, and more split kernels than peanuts stored in other locations within the bins.
