I'd say landuse=agricultural applies strictly to farms.  Growing crops,
raising animals,
that sort of thing.  A grain storage facility is stretching things a lot.
If you go with that
then you could call a business selling tractors landuse=agricultural.

Having thought about it, a case could be made for landuse=depot +
or something along those lines.  That's stretching things too, since the
wiki definition is
very slanted towards vehicles, but English usage of depot means a storage
facility of
any kind.  The wiki mentions that landuse=depot can be used for warehouses,
silos are just special types of warehouse (if you squint when you look at

Or maybe just landuse=commercial, since the place exists for the purpose of
buying and
selling grain, storage is just a side-effect of doing that.
