Natural-Air Crop Drying
Natural-Air drying is an in-storage drying system which utilizes unheated air to dry the crop. Air is forced upward through the grain, evaporating and carrying away the water. Drying takes place in a drying zone which advances upward through the grain (Figure 1). Grain above this drying zone remains at the initial moisture content or slightly above, while grain below the drying zone is at a moisture content in equilibrium with the drying air. The process may take several weeks depending on the airflow rate, climatic conditions and the amount of water to be removed. Natural-air drying requires enough airflow to complete drying within the allowable storage time, the time before significant quality deterioration takes place.
Equilibrium Moisture Content
The moisture content of "dry" grain when natural air drying fluctuates with the temperature and relative humidity conditions of the outside air. Table 1 illustrates the relationship between temperature, relative humidity and the equilibrium moisture content (EMC) for several crops. The EMC of corn at 50 Degrees Fahrenheit and 60 percent relative humidity is 13.9 percent moisture content.
