Please complete the following intake form in order to be considered for participation in Team Alberta's grain conditioning project. The goal is to assess on farm energy consumption and efficiency of heated air drying, in-bin natural air drying (NAD) and in-bin NAD with supplemental heat; however, Team Alberta would like to hear from all farmers that may be interested in participating.
Upon completion of this form you will be contacted for a phone interview by 3D Energy - an engineering, management and project development company that has been hired to administer the study.
This is a three year study and will require participants to work with experts to install necessary measuring implements, along with perform data readings and manual logging throughout the drying period year over year.
You will have your energy use monitored and receive individualized, first-hand knowledge of your system's efficiencies and learn how to make operation specific decisions to help reduce the cost of your grain conditioning practices and improve overall efficiencies.
