One method of handling oat grain with a moisture content too high for safe storage is artificial drying. This practice involves forcing heated air through the grain until the moisture content is reduced to the 13.5 percent considered safe. Problems inherent with this practice are the maximum grain moisture content at which artificial heat can be applied safely, and the maximum temperatures that can be used for drying.
