Sementes Produtiva used to remove moisture mechanically with refrigeration equipment. The RH level in the chamber varied from below 50% during dry season to over 60% during humid season, Whereas, the required RH level is to be maintained between 50% to 60%.
 
Eventually, the refrigeration method was unsuccessful in maintaining the required RH level which in turn affected the seed quality. In addition to this, the energy consumption was higher while using the conventional method.

recommended Sementes Produtiva to install Bry-Air Desiccant Dehumidifier at Barro Branco farm. The dehumidifiers helped in maintaining seed quality by providing constant dry air at medium temperature all year round, irrespective to its ambient conditions. It effectively minimized the risk of seed damage and reduced the energy consumption significantly.
