Best Tractors

However, if the weather is bad and the quality of the grain is in danger, it may be more economical to protect quality by harvesting early (before ripeness) even if an increased post-harvest drying cost is incurred. Due to the timeliness factor, machinery of a somewhat higher capacity is often employed to avoid timeliness penalties that may accrue due to the use of a contractor, machine breakdown and repair, bad weather or operator illness.
Spoilage microorganisms (bacteria, fungi) may also be controlled by temperature reduction (preferably to 4 C or less) usually requiring refrigeration. In certain cases, drying may also be used to control both fungal and respirational activity.
