Own farm drying versus contract drying? Stationary drying equipment pays where there is a high proportion of grain maize

Mais ( 3): 96-97
Own farm drying versus contract drying? Stationary drying equipment pays where there is a high proportion of grain maize
Comparison of contract and owned equipment for maize drying shows that on the assumption of a grain maize fresh matter yield of 10 t/ha the extra capital involved for purchasing portable drying equipment becomes justified for a minimum of 15 ha. The purchase of more expensive stationary equipment only becomes worth while for an area of at least 40 ha.
