Grain-drying study needs farmers

Grain-drying study needs farmers

Lethbridge College is looking for wheat farmers for a grain-drying study. It will examine in-bin natural air drying, in-bin drying with heater, high-temperature drying, and combination drying (high temperature followed by in-bin natural air drying).

The study will be province-wide and is looking for producers with 20,000- to 50,000-bushel bins with temperature and moisture monitoring. (Fully automated fan and heater control are also preferred.)

Participating growers willing to automate can get a 20 per cent discount on monitoring cables and control systems from OPIsystems in Calgary.
