Dryeration experience with grain corn in Ontario
Authors: Winfield, R. G.
Description: Dryeration is a combination of the drying and aeration processes. The combination of high speed, high temperature drying and slow cooling after a tempering period was initiated at Purdue University by a group of Agricultural Engineers in 1962. By 1964 a number of Indiana elevator and farm drier operators had accepted the principle as being feasible and had put it into practice. The trend continued, and in 1965 at least two elevator operators in Ontario had installed dryeration equipment. Acceptance of the new process was not without complications. Material and climatic factors are different in Ontario and not all the management considerations had been thoroughly investigated. However, new operators picked up the trend and more dryer ation equipment has been installed in the interim.
