Fall Harvest Forecast: Temporary Grain Storage

For years, grain experts have been predicting that, based on the current projection of grain production and usage, a grain storage shortage was imminent. For years, corn and soybean production has been outpacing permanent grain storage capacity. Now it appears that prediction has at last come true with the 2016 crop. While the good news is that United States farmers will harvest a record amount of grain this fall, the bad news is that farmers lack the permanent grain storage necessary to properly and safely store their predicted 2016 bumper crops.


Experts currently estimate that the 2016 corn and soybean harvest will exceed the storage space available by approximately 20-22%. This means that harvest crops will be in temporary storage until perhaps past January. The unknown variable impacting the length of time that temporary storage is needed is the amount of rainfall. For most producers, this means they will have to store their crops in outdoor piles, both tarped and non-tarped, depending on the potential estimated loss. Temporary outdoor storage needs to be constructed as soon as possible as the harvest season is quickly approaching.

While it appears that utilizing temporary storage this fall seems unavoidable, the team at FS Construction Services is here to help you plan long-term and ensure you meet all of your future permanent grain storage needs. At FS Construction Services, along with our partners GSI, Sukup and Brock, we offer the best in grain storage systems. By planning now, FS Construction Services can work with you to choose the best permanent grain storage system for you.
