Crop Drying

Drying of maize for storage has become a vital part of the introduction of maize grain for livestock feeding in Saudi Arabia.  Agricultural Technology supplies a range of driers from the UK, for drying a very wide variety of crops.  Capacities range from under 8 tons up to 50 tons per hour and beyond.  These are often supplied with integrated handling and cleaning facilities and can also be integrated into existing storage units.

Capacities for the Saudi market are rated from a nominal intake moisture of 24% and drying to a safe storage moisture of 12- 14%.

Forage driers are also available and can be used for all types of forage crops ranging from grasses to legumes.  Moisture reduction is usually in the range of 65% to 12% for safe baling and storage.
