Abstract

Direct energy expenses (diesel, gasoline, propane, electricity) total nearly $1 billion annually for Iowa’s farmers. When it’s required, drying energy can be a significant cost for corn production. This study measured propane and electrical energy used in high-temperature bin drying of corn on the farm.
