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

, : Own farm drying versus contract drying? Stationary drying equipment pays where there is a high proportion of grain maize. Mais ( 3): 96-97

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.

Fixed bed drying systems do not exhibit good energy efficiency, but in the case of seed drying, have the advantage that there is minimal seed movement, and hence minimal damage. A fixed bed seed drying system was evaluated for energy efficiency an...
