Question of the Week – Corn Dryer

Posted by romeethredge on March 8, 2013

Last week I had a photo of the inside of a corn dryer. It’s best to go ahead and get corn harvested when the moisture is above 20 percent and get it in the dryer to dry it down with air and heat in a dryer like this (this uses LP gas). There are other types that work well too. Many folks have on farm storage bins to put it in as well to hold for later delivery for price reasons and due to the fact that trucks often are scarce or they are sitting in lines to unload. If you plan to be in the corn growing business in a big way, you need on farm drying and storage capabilities. Other reasons for getting the corn out quickly are the possibility of storms and wind blowing it down and if you want to get a second crop in, then it gives you more time.

This week I have a photo I took in my yard this week. I want you to identify what this is in the photo.
