Harvest

harvestingcrop failureharvests
This durability has made grains well suited to industrial agriculture, since they can be mechanically harvested, transported by rail or ship, stored for long periods in silos, and milled for flour or pressed for oil.
Reaping is the cutting of grain or pulse for harvest, typically using a scythe, sickle, or reaper.

Flour

This durability has made grains well suited to industrial agriculture, since they can be mechanically harvested, transported by rail or ship, stored for long periods in silos, and milled for flour or pressed for oil.
Flour is a powder made by grinding raw grains or roots and used to make many different foods.

Wheat

Thus, major global commodity markets exist for maize, rice, soybeans, wheat and other grains but not for tubers, vegetables, or other crops.
Wheat is a grass widely cultivated for its seed, a cereal grain which is a worldwide staple food.

Rye

Rye (Secale cereale) is a grass grown extensively as a grain, a cover crop and a forage crop.

This durability has made grains well suited to industrial agriculture, since they can be mechanically harvested, transported by rail or ship, stored for long periods in silos, and milled for flour or pressed for oil.
The first modern silo, a wooden and upright one filled with grain, was invented and built in 1873 by Fred Hatch of McHenry County, Illinois, USA.

Sorghum

One species is grown for grain, while many others are used as fodder plants, either cultivated in warm climates worldwide or naturalized, in pasture lands.

Triticale

As a rule, triticale combines the yield potential and grain quality of wheat with the disease and environmental tolerance (including soil conditions) of rye.

Quinoa

quinoa (Amaranth family, formerly classified as Goosefoot family)
It is a herbaceous annual plant grown as a grain crop primarily for its edible seeds.

Caryopsis

Grains and cereal are synonymous with caryopses, the fruits of the grass family.
The caryopsis is popularly called a grain and is the fruit typical of the family Poaceae (or Gramineae), which includes wheat, rice, and corn.

Polygonaceae

buckwheat (Smartweed family)
The seeds of two species of Fagopyrum, known as buckwheat (sarrasin in French), provide grain (its dark flour is known as blé noir (black wheat) in France).

Grain entrapment

Risks include grain entrapment, where workers are submerged in the grain and unable to remove themselves; explosions caused by fine particles of grain dust, and falls.
Grain entrapment, or grain engulfment, occurs when a person becomes submerged in grain and cannot get out without assistance.

Grain elevator

Risks include grain entrapment, where workers are submerged in the grain and unable to remove themselves; explosions caused by fine particles of grain dust, and falls.
In grain trade, the term grain elevator also describes a tower containing a bucket elevator or a pneumatic conveyor, which scoops up grain from a lower level and deposits it in a silo or other storage facility.

Cereal

The two main types of commercial grain crops are cereals and legumes.
A cereal is any of the edible components of the grain (botanically, a type of fruit, called a caryopsis) of cultivated grass, composed of the endosperm, germ, and bran.

Ancient grains

Ancient Grain
Ancient grains
Ancient grains are a grouping of grains and pseudocereals that are considered to have been little changed by selective breeding over recent millennia, as opposed to more widespread cereals such as corn, rice and modern varieties of wheat, which are the product of thousands of years of selective breeding.

Grain drying

Grain drying
Grain drying is process of drying grain to prevent spoilage during storage.

Perennial grain

Perennial grain
A perennial grain is a grain crop that lives and remains productive for two or more years, rather than growing for only one season before harvest, like most grains and annual crops.

Occupational hazards of grain facilities

occupational hazards and exposures
Those who handle grain at grain facilities may encounter numerous occupational hazards and exposures.
Grain entrapment, occurs when victims are partially submerged in grain and are unable to remove themselves; grain engulfment occurs when victims are completely submerged in grain and unable to remove themselves.

Dust explosion

Risks include grain entrapment, where workers are submerged in the grain and unable to remove themselves; explosions caused by fine particles of grain dust, and falls.
In addition, many otherwise mundane organic materials can also be dispersed into a dangerous dust cloud, such as grain, flour, starch, sugar, powdered milk, cocoa, coffee, and pollen.

List of dried foods

List of dried foods
Grain consists of wheat, corn, soybean, rice, and other grains as sorghum, sunflower seeds, rapeseed/canola, barley, oats, etc. are dried in grain dryers. In the main agricultural countries, drying comprises the reduction of moisture from about 17–30% to 8-15%, depending on the grain. The final moisture content for drying must be adequate for storage. Additional grains include lentils, wild rice, chick peas, and millet.
