In-Bin Drying (IBD) Monitor
In-bin drying can give you very low cost, low effort, grain drying capacity on your farm that you can fire up at a moments notice. But up until now it could be very unpredictable.
Drying grain in an aeration bin without instrumentation is like taking a week long trip in a car with no speedometer, odometer, navigation or road signs. You don’t know how fast you’re going and you don’t know when you’ll get to your destination. You don’t even know if you are going in the right direction! You are simply blind and potentially risking the grain in your bin.
Over dried grain is costing you money!
Top Grade Ag’s - IBD Monitor provides the following gauge cluster:
Having an in-bin drying system has changed the way I start harvest. By starting earlier and using the Top Grade Ag system, I can capture more higher quality grain and take advantage of the higher outdoor temperatures to keep my drying costs down. The user-friendly web app keeps me informed of what is happening in my bins and gives me some predictability on what I can expect from the drying process. After three years of trouble-free operation, I do not hesitate to recommend this system to others.
Glenn is great at returning calls and emails. Always very helpful.
This system takes away the “Black box” feel of in-bin drying. It provides predictability and with that comes reduced stress!
A product that makes the science of in-bin drying reliable and repeatable. A very simple system that allows the guesswork to be removed when grain is dried in the bin. We were able to dry 20% wheat and 16% canola in the bin this year and know that it was dry when the sensors/website told us it was. The biggest benefit I see to in bin drying is the risk of fire is almost zero combined with no need of supervision. The biggest downfall is not knowing when the grain is dry. This product solves that!
Rather than going by the seat of your pants, you get an idea whats happening in your bin. Helps with planning.
Found it very informative to monitor humidity levels, both as grain dried within the bin, as well as outside humidity changes. Provided great comfort to know drying progress & when to expect target moisture levels – predictability.
