On farm storage aeration - Cooling, drying and retrofitting

Plain text source: 
Aeration of stored grain has four main purposes - preventing mould, inhibiting insect development, maintaining seed viability and reducing grain moisture... Without circulation, the air surrounding the grain will reach a moisture (relative humidity) and temperature equilibrium within a few days... Aeration drying using large volumes of air can force a drying front through the grain in storage and slowly remove moisture...
