In-Bin Drying: Top Grade Ag

The In-Bin Drying Monitor is a technology developed by Top Grade Ag that uses a proprietary algorithm with pressure, temperature and humidity sensors to optimize grain drying procedures. This technology, which is being evaluated by Olds College, could improve the cost effectiveness and efficiencies involved in drying grain using a bin drying strategy as an alternative to specialized grain drying equipment requiring a higher initial capital investment.
