Crop drying

Whatever your crop, choose Calor for drying

You've harnessed nature to grow your valuable crops

So the last thing you want is for them to spoil in post-harvest storage

You may be interested to know that Calor LPG is a highly controllable fuel, which makes ideal crop-drying temperatures easy to maintain. Whatever your crop, we can provide clean, safe and effective power for both mobile and static grain dryers.

The benefits of LPG

You couldn't pick a better fuel

Economic and efficient drying of produce such as wheat maize, barley, rapeseed, peas, potatoes, bulbs and onions for storage and sale.

As there's no soot build-up in the dryer, you'll spend less on maintenance costs – saving you more in the long run.

As your crop will be dried soon after being harvested, you'll have less crop wastage. 

Calor gas’ complete combustion process means crops can be dried economically and efficiently for storage and onward sale. On average, 2.5 litres of propane will reduce the moisture level of a ton of grain by 1%.

For mobile on-site drying, self-contained batch dryers are available from all major manufacturers - all that’s needed is a tractor to transfer energy to the dryer. You’ll find there’s also a wide choice of LPG-compatible, competitively-priced continuous flow dryers, which can be sited wherever’s best for you.

Grain Crop Farming

From seed to market  

Calor gas is a highly controllable fuel that can care for your crop from seed to market. 

Perfect crop control 

As the cleanest-burning fossil fuel, cutting CO2 emissions by 18%* per kWh compared with heating oil, Calor gas won't taint your produce. It can even help enhance the colour of some crops during drying.
