The National Corn Growers Association reminds farmers of the importance of proper grain bin safety procedures this harvest. With farmers across the country busy in their fields, NCGA is again offering a video highlighting the importance of proper safety procedures and reviewing helpful guidelines.

The video was co-produced with the National Grain and Feed Foundation, the research and education arm of the National Grain and Feed Association.
First released in 2011, this video remains relevant and illustrates the significant threat bin entrapment can pose. Shot on location in several states, it provides a wide range of information, from prevention tips and background data on grain bin accidents. The project also involved interviews with professionals in the fields of grain bin safety research and rescue to provide as much information to viewers as possible.
