Permalink Chemical-Free Crop Storage Bags Commercially Available Worldwide

A crop-storage bag designed by Purdue University scientists to prevent post-harvest, insect-caused losses is now commercially available worldwide. The Purdue Improved Crop Storage (PICS) bag is a chemical-free, low-cost method of protecting crops. The triple-layer sealed plastic bag cuts off oxygen supply to create hermetic conditions that protect dry grain from insect damage in storage. PICS Global Inc. has licensed the technology and will be providing PICS bags to farmers all over the world by developing an efficient and effective supply chain.
