Title: The performance and economic feasibility of solar grain drying systems. Final report for 1976

Abstract

The performance and costs of eight experimental on-farm solar collectors designed to dry corn were studied. Solar drying costs were compared with the costs of owning and operating conventional grain dryers. The eight solar grain drying systems studied include: Rock heat-storage, flat-plate, inflated tube, suspended plate, wraparound, intensifier, air-supported, and multiuse.
