  • The Facts About Grain Aeration - PAMI

    2020-3-20  For aeration, if the outside air is cooler than the grain, the grain will cool. For natural air drying, if the air has “capacity to dry”, the grain will dry. The air’s capacity to dry is dictated by the Equilibrium Moisture Content (EMC) of grain. The EMC dpends on air temperature, air relative humidity (RH), and grain type.
