I agree with this. 20-25000 wet holding. Better to keep dryer running and preforming at max efficiency. 40-60000 dry bin that way You have storage for 70-80 % of your corn with the wet bin. Other wise your wet bin will sit empty all the time. Large fan on the wet bin to hold corn in condition if the last of the corn is above 17% until you have room to dry it. 17 an under you probably can dry in the bin. I think 50-60000 bu bins are a good value and someday you can build another. More bins create more versatility for other crops as well in the future. You can alway haul dry corn out during rain delays and you can dry corn in a mist or light rain if you need to. Air system from dryer to bin and cool in the bin. With three phase you can get a big enough b air system to push corn through the dryer on years where the corn is coming out of the field dryer without getting it to dry.
