Farmer volunteers are needed for a grain conditioning study being conducted by Team Alberta (the province’s wheat, barley, canola, and pulse commissions). The study will collect data on energy consumption and efficiency of grain drying and conditioning systems.
Its findings will provide information for farmers regarding efficiencies; implementation or expansion of grain conditioning systems; and for advocacy on programs and policies related to on-farm grain conditioning.
Participants will work with experts to install necessary measuring implements, perform data readings, and manual logging over three years. Along with data from the energy-use monitor, they will receive individualized recommendations on reducing costs.
