After this year’s damp and frustrating harvest, many farmers are looking to boost their grain drying capacity to avoid being caught out again.

But what’s the answer? Maybe a pukka continuous-flow system that’s a big investment but will give you high throughputs? Or a cheaper mobile drier that can be wheeled into action in wet harvests?

Or maybe you just want to make small improvements at minimal cost like improving your moisture and temperature monitoring, or adding a stirrer?

Or, alternatively, maybe you’re wanting to find ways to cut your grain drying energy costs?
