DRI-Stack™ system reduces corn spoilage once it’s harvested, optimizes grain quality, shortens time-to-market and increases farmers’ profits

Haber Technologies will launch its patent-pending DRI-Stack™ system at the Farm News Ag Show, Dec. 4-5, 2019 in Fort Dodge, Iowa.

Ames, IA Haber Technologies, Inc. announces the launch of its patent-pending, grain drying and aeration system called the DRI-Stack™ (Direct Routing Intelligence Stack), which was developed to speed grain drying, reduce energy use and improve grain quality. The DRI-Stack, using only ambient air, can dry 26% moisture corn to 15.5% in as quickly as four days.

Haber Technologies will officially launch DRI-Stack™, a revolutionary new way to bin dry and aerate corn without high heat, during the Farm News Ag Show, December 4 -5, 2019, in Fort Dodge, IA. Haber Technologies is a show exhibitor; booth features include a 16 foot DRI-Stack prototype, videos on the company’s three farm-scale installations, and product demonstrations. Haber Technologies Co-Founder, CEO Dillon Hurd; Co-Founder, CTO Eric Harweger; Vice President Dave Furbush; and Board Member Brian Porter, will be available for questions and are scheduled to provide product demonstrations. The event is free and open to the public with free parking.

Approximately one-third of the world’s grain is damaged due to excess moisture. If not dried properly, Iowa farmers risk spoilage of their corn harvest – estimated at 2.5 billion bushels in the state – which could result in serious social and economic issues such as food insecurity and lost income. Additionally, the impacts of weather variability can be felt across the post-harvest agricultural sector. This year’s late harvest, wet corn and shortage of propane fuel needed for drying have only compounded challenges farmers face.

The launch of Haber Technologies’ patent-pending DRI-Stack system will allow farmers to de-risk harvest and storage, save energy and take advantage of an earlier harvest with faster, no-heat drying. By harvesting earlier and drying faster without high heat, the DRI-Stack system can increase both yield per acre and grade of corn.

DRI-Stack™ Product Launch Details:
DATE/TIME: Exhibit: Wednesday, December 4, from 8:30 – 5:00 p.m. and Thursday, December 5 from 7:30 – 3:00 p.m. Product demonstrations will take place daily from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m.

LOCATION: Farm News Ag Show, Iowa Central Community College East Campus, 2031 Quail Avenue, Fort Dodge, Iowa. (Formerly Smithway Motor Express location). Haber Technologies, Inc.’s double end-cap booth #19 / #36 will be located between the show entrance and northeast corner of the exhibitors’ space.
