Swenk, M. H. & Whelan, D. B. (1940). Control of stored grain pests in Nebraska (University of Nebraska Agricultural Experiment Station Circular No. 62)
At the close of 1939 about twice the amount of wheat was in storage in Nebraska as compared to the close of 1938. Frequently a new crop of grain goes into storage before the preceding older grain leaves the farm, and, due to inadequate storage space, the crops are not kept separated, thus promoting an early infestation of the new grain from the older grain that has become infested. Under such conditions the damage by stored grain pests becomes a matter of unusual importance.
