Mr E. Jayakumar, food storage consultant, explained that food security is vital to India’s food policy. There is currently 20-30 percent wastage in food storage including slippages through sack opening and Rodents. Obial, one of the leading scientific grain storage companies from Turkey has brought zinc-plated steel silos and conveyance equipment to stem this problem and claims to bring down the wastage to 2 percent. For this the company uses up to 3% Magnesium all over the Silos instead of only rooftops and gives a 10 year warranty for its users. Since the storage for paddy and subsequent rice grain happens for the long time in India, Obial Silos are better than the other common GE based Silos.
