Iowa Grain Elevators May See Higher Propane Prices this Fall

Wet weather means more drying, increasing demand on fuel

Chief Commercial Grain Dryers

Wet weather is slowing the harvest season in Iowa, and may impact the grain elevators once the grain reaches their doorstep.

Cory Benson, the location manager at the Gavilon Grain, described to Sioxland Proud, how their company may be impacted this year.

“This year, probably half or three-quarters of what we bring in will probably have to be touched by the dryer. In years past, half will be a lot,” said Benson.

All of that drying will also take away some of their profits, especially if the increased demand further drives up the cost of propane.
