Evaluating energy efficiency of on-farm grain conditioning systems (Year 1)

August 26, 2020

Year-one observations from a groundbreaking study on the efficiency of in-bin supplemental heating and heated air dryer systems for grain conditioning.

As part of a three-year study, select in-bin supplemental drying systems and heated air drying systems in Alberta were monitored during the 2019 harvest season to assess the typical energy consumption that farmers experienced. The long-term objective of the study is to fill the data gaps related to the efficiency of in-bin supplemental heating systems and heated air dryers that Alberta farmers use. This information will assist on-farm decision making and guide government programs and policies.
