Early frost or late rain fall can spell stress for growers, especially when it keeps them out of the field for days or weeks.
Grain drying equipment allows for a more flexible harvest, while often extending the season. It also enables growers to eliminate several days of in-field drying, while conditioning the grain more quickly and effectively than traditional aeration equipment. Being a little less dependant on the weather gives you more control.
The right propane-fuelled grain drying equipment can improve your farms productivity, while helping to ensure an improved bottom line and peace of mind.
Switching to propane dryers helps reduce the risk of crop loss, offers the ability to manage quality control better and increase storage time longevity.
