An Internal-Fan Kiln For Drying Seed Cones
Abstract:Although the drying of seed cones with artificial heat to quicken the opening of the cones has been a practice in North America and in Europe for some time, the results obtained point to a need for improved apparatus. The purpose of this paper is to describe a cone kiln that will do the job in less time than most existing seed cone drying methods and at the same time will yield more viable seeds per bushel of cones at a lower cost per pound of seed produced.
