Low Temperature, In-Bin Drying: Shelled Corn in Southwest, Central and Northern Missouri
Metadata[+] Show full item record
This guide explains how to manage low-temperature, in-bin drying of shelled corn. Low-temperature drying is natural air drying (using only a fan) or natural air drying plus supplemental heat to raise the air temperature an additional 2 to 4 degrees Fahrenheit. Natural air drying uses the heat in the outside air plus the heat released from the fan motor, which raises the air temperature about 2 degrees Fahrenheit. The supplemental heat may be provided by gas heaters, electric heaters, solar collectors, etc.
