The Bry-Air® Seed Dryers and Seed Storage Systems dry and preserve seeds without affecting their quality.
Seeds need to be preserved for short term and long term for future use …replanting as well as research. Seed ageing and ultimately death occurs due to time. However, it is possible to ensure long survival of seeds by controlling temperature and relative humidity. Reduction in temperature and moisture content ensures increased seed life.
Seeds can be preserved for long period by lowering the moisture content of seeds to around 5%.This is achieved by drying the seeds. Conventionally, seeds are dried at elevated temperatures which destroy their germination potential.
Bry-Air Seed Dryers, based on the state-of-the-art Desiccant Dehumidification Drying Technology, dry the seeds to the required level in approximately eight (8) hours without affecting their quality.
Seeds dried prior to storage can regain moisture and suffer damage if not stored under controlled conditions. Dried seeds can be preserved for years in dehumidified stores without loss of germination potential.
Bry-Air Dehumidification based Seed Dryers and Storage Systems are being used extensively world over by commercial and plant breeding organisations including the FAO.
