FarmFriday has this to share to our readers who have installed the maligaya flatbed dryer or planning to install one. Here’s a few reminders from PhilRice:
- Check/monitor the temperature of drying air, air static pressure at the plenum, and grain depth when operating the dryer.
- When drying palay for seed purposes, the temperature should not exceed 43oC. For commercial purposes (milled rice), a higher temperature of up to 52oC can be used.
