Crop Drying With Propane

September 22, 2023 | Posted in Articles

As the corn and bean fields turn from green to brown, farmers begin their fall harvest.

In order to safely and successfully store their crops for the winter, the moisture content has to be just right. To quickly achieve this, farmers use large crop dryers that slowly “roast” the corn and beans to remove excess moisture. Due to the remote locations of some of these dryers, Propane is a main source of fuel for these dryers.

Farmers often have a short window or opportunity to pick their crops at just the right time and run them through these large crop dryers. Because of this, once a farmer begins the process, it can be a non-stop process until all crops are processed. This means keeping these Propane tanks topped off become a #1 priority for our staff.
