Since batch drying is a slower more gentle style of drying, with the availability to select quite modest drying air temperatures, it is particularly suitable for sensitive crops and seed drying applications.

Capital costs of these dryers are also much lower than for continuous flow and re-circulating batch dryers and are therefore well suited to the smaller grain producer.
