Grain Colour Sorter Project

EARDLEADER PROGRAMME

The project involves the purchase & installation of a grain colour sorter to improve the quality of local farmers produce at the storage & conditioning plant at Moorleys Farm.

It can achieve removal of Vomitoxin, Fusarium, Ergot, discoloured, damaged or bug infested grain. This will enhance crop value & avoid costly crop penalties & additional haulage charges.

The project will also enable a greater proportion of growers crops to enter the higher value food chain, resulting in higher premiums paid to growers & reduce wastage of high value grains.

It is part funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development
