The application of air can accomplish two purposes: cooling and low temperature drying. For the latter instance, run fans continuously. Safe storage moisture contents and associated equilibrium relative humidity are presented in Table 1.

BMP: Manage grain moisture content and aeration to keep the equilibrium relative humidity (ERH) below 65% in the grain bin.
