If one combine bouncing around, you need enough wet holding to maximize days he is there. So 15-20000 bu wet holding bin. Most builders today push a big holding bin and a smaller dryer that runs 24-7. Most here use a air system behind dryer to put dry into storage. So a 500 bph dryer, if you start dryer on first load with a 15000 bu holding bin minus cone would give you 13000 wet holding plus 3000 dryer dries while filling the wet bin. So 8 days of drying. If combine can come every day and fill wet bin, you don’t need as much wet holding if every two days you probably need more wet holding. We generally have a 30 day season to take out corn but have to allow for some rain days so we shoot for 20 days of harvesting. As corn gets dryer we always take out more per day so kind of a harvest curve.
