Description: In-bin natural air drying of grain produces high quality grain and is cost effective. However, due to weather dependency of in-bin drying, it is important to use the right fan and heater (optional) control strategies. Appropriate control strategies are also required to optimize the drying performance with uniform drying, energy efficiency, minimum under/over drying, and to reach the target moisture without significant dry matter and quality loss prior to winter storage. Commonly used fan/heater control strategies (continuous Fan ON, fan ON During Day, Fan on During Night, NAD, and self-adapting variable heat (SAVH)) for in-bin natural air drying of grain were investigated.
