IGP-KSU Grain Elevator Managers

Course Dates: January 9-13, 2017 and January 30-February 3, 2017

IGP's Grain Elevator Managers Course benefits individuals who are responsible for supervising grain managers. The course is designed for US conditions (agronomic, business, climatic) and therefore is open only to those who work in North America. The course focuses on the science behind the practices used in grain management. It provides new managers the information they need to correctly interpret the experiences they will have when managing grain quality, and the insight they will require when evaluating the practices used by their predecessors. 


Course Topics

Personnel management; grain quality assessment; grain handling equipment; grain drying; grain operations costs; grain inventory management; grain receiving and shipping, grain condition monitoring; grain aeration principles; grain aeration strategies; grain fumigation.

Students receive a copy of the textbook "Managing Stored Grain" upon registration and are expected to know the concepts described therein prior to attending the course. Students are tested on each subject and are expected to formulate and describe in writing the plans they will use to ensure that the most cost-effective practices are used for each elevator operation. Tests and plans are graded.

Persons who supervise or who aspire to supervise grain elevator managers. 

Registration Fee

$1,000/person. This fee includes textbook and all instructional material, three lunches, and a certificate of completion. Housing and other meals are not included.
