Drying cereal grains has become an essential operation in the modern practice of harvesting and processing agricultural crops. In view of the importance of this development, the establishment of design requirements for drying systems on a rational basis is imperative. A better knowledge of the drying parameters in a thin bed should permit improved under standing of the deep-bed drying operation. This study has been designed to determine the effects of air temperature, relative humidity, and air flow rate upon the dynamic equilibrium moisture con tent, the drying rate constant, and the diffusion coefficient of wheat grain. The drying experiments were con ducted using temperatures between 60UF (15.6
