Abstract/Summary Grain may be used where it is grown (subsistence farming) or on the opposite side of the world from its growth site (international trade). In either case, to preserve its quality, grain must be kept clean, dry, and free of insect contamination. Artificial or natural drying methods may be used. Insects may be controlled with insecticides. Alternatives include the use of fumigants or inert gases.
