Aim:

Many materials such as fertiliser, grass seed and loam need to be kept dry.

Method: 

  • A dry structure with a solid floor and a wide opening door is advantage.
  • Covered bays can be used for large volumes of material such as soil.
  • Additional storage is needed for chemicals such as pesticides to meet current legislation and the operator need to be certificated.

Timing:

All year.

Effects of Incorrect Procedure:

When fertiliser is wet it is unusable, fertiliser and grass seed is expensive so all the materials need to be kept secure and dry.
