Abstract

Direct energy expenses (diesel, gasoline, propane, electricity) total more than $1 billion annually for Iowa’s farmers. When it’s required, grain drying energy can be significant for corn. This study measured propane and electrical energy used in high temperature bin drying of corn on the research farm.
