Post-harvest technology - currently the focus of intense scientific and technical study has experienced a virtual explosion of activity since 1980. Along the way a great deal of attention has turned to grain quality in the world marketplace. Realizing that proper control of moisture content is the key to the delivery of quality grain to its place of ultimate use noted experts Brooker Bakker-Arkema and Hall offer a new state-of-the-art book on the theory and art of drying and storage. The book reflects their 115 years of combined experience in teaching research writing and design of crop drying processes and equipment. With a distinct eye toward the future Drying and Storage of Grains and Oilseed offers clear-cut practical information on the drying of cereal and feed grains (corn wheat rice oats sorghum barley) and oilseeds (soybeans canola sunflower seed). Complete in its coverage the book presents discussions of the basic physical and thermodynamic properties of grain and air as well as the drying process theory. In addition the design of on-farm and off-farm dryers together with the optimum operating conditions for these dryers are included.
