silo

an airtight and insect-proof container used to store agricultural products and to make ensilage. May be made of concrete, rarely of brick, or of glass-lined steel or be a hole dug in the ground, or two parallel barricades lined with plastic. Those used for grain storage need only to be insect-proof and airtight. Those used for ensilage making need also to be resistant to the corrosive effect of the acids produced during anaerobic fermentation. See also ensilage.
