Cool and dry condition maintains rapeseed quality during storage. The parameters of aeration management of modern systems for cooling. natural-air drying of dry and medium dry rapeseed, and control of storage temperature are described. The moisture and temperature characteristics of the environment in Bulgaria during rapeseed harvest when the seed moisture is up to 10-11% presupposes as most cost effective the storage regime of low temperature drying and cooling with active aeration.
