While this year's crop may be coming off the field dry, It's still important to cool it down.

That from Dr Joy Agnew, who is the program manager of agricultural research services with the Prarie Agricultural Machinery Institute.

Agnew talked about what temperature a farmer should for air when cooling down his grain,

"So even if it's dry the temperature still has to be dropped to 15 degrees Celsius or lower to minimize the risk of spoilage."

Agnew added that the best way to cool it down is to blow air through it.

"Blow air through it, that is by far the easiest way to do it, the physics behinds isn't exactly difficult if the outside air is cooler than the grain and you blow it through the grain then the grain is going to cool and that's what you want."

Agnew notes it wouldn't be a bad idea to cool the grain down even more, to around zero or five degrees
