Shove ABSTRACT—Recent price increases and shortages of petroleumbased fuels have led to increased research efforts on solar grain dryers. Grain drying is a particularly suitable area for using solar energy, since it requires only small temperature differences and can be interrupted, so that no energy storage system is needed.
