Grain Bin Systems of the Future

How will grain bin systems evolve in the next decade? Take a virtual tour via AgWeb’s Farm of the Future site.

Think that instantaneous access to markets and customers will eliminate the need for brokers? Think again. Farming operations are likely to still need help (combining orders with other farmers) and timing sales.

Meanwhile, improved grain storage will give farmers even greater control over the timing of grain sales. New drying and storage technology will enable them to maximize yields, etc.

Here are four articles and videos on AgWeb's Farm of the Future site to watch to gain insight about the future of your farm’s grain bin system.


The grain bin of the future supports faster fill rates, provides more storage in a smaller footprint and increases peak capacities.

Biotechnology and globalization will be heavy factors in how farmers sell their product.


Grain bin monitoring will become more streamlined—and a lot safer—with the help of automation software, sensors and smartphones.

As grain production expands, so does the need for grain storage, and ag futurist Scott Shearer doesn’t see that changing in the future. As such, grain bins will become more high-tech.
