Drying grain is necessary for proper storage, handling and processing; the methods used for drying grain have an important influence on quality and the overall economics of the process. This book provides all the tools needed for effective grain drying, inculding mathematical theory, tabulated data on the physical and thermal properties of grains, and more.
