Mineral oil is legally restricted to upper application rates of 1.6 gallons per 1,000 bushels. We recommend that you only use 1.25 gallons per 1,000 bushels.

Can treated grain be mixed with untreated grain?
In an amendment to FDA regulation 21 CFR 172-878, the application of white mineral oil as a dust control agent was allowed. In March of 1987, the use of soybean oil was also approved and entered into the Federal Reserve. This is true for all commercial and feed small grains.
Yes, the treated grain will only slightly reduce the dust loss of the untreated grain.
