Abstract

As harvesting combines increase in size and capacity it places a tremendous strain on farm grain drying and handling systems. This paper provides a practical guide for addressing many of the questions that arise when expanding or planning new grain drying, handling and storage systems. It deals with sizing receiving and drying systems, dump pits, deciding on use of a dryer versus in-bin drying, selection of conveyors, choke feeding of dryers, automatic controls, and ends with an example of a grain drying, handling and storage system.
