In order to maintain the long-term quality of your onions, it is important to keep the environmental factors for storage within the optimum range. This includes the right temperature and relative humidity. With our advanced automation systems, we can help you achieve the right storage climate for your onions. After all, a good climate really makes the difference!
Mooij Agro has the knowledge to store onions under optimum conditions, with maximum efficiency, anywhere in the world. We have developed sensors that can create the perfect storage conditions for every onion store manager. Our automation systems provide the right balance between ventilation, heating and cooling. This is done on the basis of the measured temperature and relative humidity in your store.
Bulk storage is the most efficient and widely used method of onion storage. This type of storage is ideal for storing large lots of onions homogeneously and for a long period of time. Mooij Agro can help you create the perfect climate to limit storage losses. In addition to the measuring and control equipment, we also provide the right fans, air inlets and air distribution systems. Depending on the climate and harvesting conditions, we also supply cooling, heating and dehumidification systems.
When storing onions in boxes, it is easy to keep one product separate from another. Keeping onions in boxes is therefore ideal for onion sets or onions for the fresh market. You can easily grade and deliver a small quantity. For the highest possible yield, it is important that you ventilate well, that all onions get the same amount of air and that the air reaches all onions well, including those in the core of the boxes. Mooij Agro can advise you on the correct ventilation system for storing onions in boxes.
In some countries, onions are bagged directly in the field. The bags are then taken to the store. An advantage of this system is that the bags are traceable and you can easily sell them in portions. Mooij Agro helps you set up a good ventilation system for your storage in bags. We ensure that the air is evenly distributed and goes through the core of each bag. This results in homogeneous ambient temperature and optimum moisture content of your onions.
With a good climate control system in place, extreme weather conditions and greatly varying day/night temperatures have virtually no impact on the climate in your storage building. This way you can ensure:
