About this site

Research on solar grain drying is directed toward utilization of a renewable energy source as an alternative to petroleum fuels for drying. Solar grain drying tests at Kansas State University were initiated in 1957 by Davis, Zachariah, and Lipper (Lipper and Davis, 1959) to compare solar sup­ plemented drying with natural air drying. In 1960 a ...

Drying wheat and barley - University of Minnesota

If you harvest grain at high moisture content, you need to artificially dry it to 13 to 14 percent moisture for safe storage. Crop producers sometimes harvest wetter-than-usual grain to reduce harvest losses or because of wet weather. There are two basic types of grain dryers: Dryers that use no heat (natural-air dryers) or very little heat (low-temperature dryers).
