Farmers who harvest early bring more total crop to market. That's because harvesting early, while the crop retains small amounts of moisture, reduces grain field losses. New propane-powered grain dryers are more efficient and distribute a very precise heat that ensures the grain dries evenly and results in a high-quality yield. The grain can then be safely stored to sell when the market is right. This combination of harvesting more grain and storing it for the right market conditions more than offsets equipment and operating costs.
PERC has partnered with GSI and Mathews Co., two key providers of grain drying systems, to bring new, more efficient grain dryers to market.
