Grain Drying, Handling, and Storage Handbook
Grain Drying, Handling, and Storage is MWPS most popular handbook! It is widely used as THE reference for planning grain drying, handling, and storage facilities.
This third edition has been substantially updated and expanded to reflect the larger grain volumes that accumulate on- and off-farm grain facilities during the busy harvest. The need and importance of safety and health, and automation that comes with faster and larger facilities, is reflected in the addition of two new chapters.
Also new are tables that contain various types of grain storage and their capacities, cross-referenced to downloadable Excel spreadsheets. The capacities in the spreadsheets can be recalculated to the needs of the grain facility.
All figures have been redrawn with clarity, or replaced with new photos. Color has been added throughout.
This handbook was developed to assist farmers, elevator managers, equipment dealers, students, and others interested in developing grain systems.
We want to acknowledge funding from the NC-213/Andersons Inc Research Grant Program administered by the Ohio State University which helped to make this new edition possible.
