Food Production, Farming

Stored Food

Silos

A grain silo can hold between 200 and 800 tons of food.
1 ton of food can produce 2000 person/days.
Silos are blue or concrete tall and thin.
Silos normally store cattle feed or wheat (grasses)

Grain Bins

Grain Bins are wider and shorter normally made of metal.
Grain Bins hold 372 tons of dried corn or soy.

Grain traincar

Hold 100 tons of grain.

Loss from improper storage

Food stored outside of Silos will degrade at the rate of 2% per week. Roughly 2000 lbs of food will be 1960 lbs of useable food after one week. This is because bulk food storage attracts animals that eat the food. Proper storage can eliminate this issue, but it is hard to store thousands of pounds of food.
