Abstract: Grain storage in elevators poses challenges due to the spread of grain pests and microscopic fungi that spoil grain during storage. The research was carried out between 2020 and 2022 in three different elevators (X1, X2 and X3) located in three different regions in Lithuania. Samples were taken from Triticum aestivum L. and Vicia faba L., sampled for the presence of the following pests: Sitophilus granarius L., Tribolium confusum Jacquelin, du Val, Acanthoscelides obtectus Say, Acarus siro L. and the presence of the microscopic fungi: Fusarium spp. L., Claviceps purpurea (Fr.) Tul. and Tilletia caries (DC.) Tul. & C. Tul. The most abundant fungi in the samples analysed appeared to be bean weevil and Fusarium spp.L.
Keywords: grain hopper, elevator, pests, microscopic fungi
