During The Process of Drying Lucerne, There Is Not hing That Cannot Be Dried As Well.

Herbaceous plants, whether annual or perennial, are the ones that include lucerne grass. Generally speaking, it is either upright or scattered, and it has complex leaves as well as three little leaves. Some fine teeth can be found on the upper border of the tiny leaves, but there is no aroma of vanilla whatsoever. As a result of its resistance to drought, cold, and heat, as well as its high yield and high quality, and its ability to improve soil characteristics, it is well known to people. The lucerne grass has a wide range of adaptability and may be grown in a variety of soils and terrains; nevertheless, the soil that is most suited for its growth is soft sandy loam.

The Value of Alfalfa Grass at the Economic Level

The manufacture of feed, the development of soil, and landscaping are all areas in which Shouying Grass excels economically. Additionally, it is an essential component in the agricultural and animal husbandry industries.

In order to improve the fertility of the soil, it is able to convert ammonia in the air into a form that can be utilised by plants through the process of nitrogen fixation. This is made possible by its ability to bind with symbiotic bacteria that are found in the roots. The deep root system of this plant, on the other hand, has the potential to enhance the structure of the soil, boost the soil's capacity to store water and increase aeration, decrease water loss, and be of considerable relevance for the protection and enhancement of the soil.

Alfalfa grass is mostly utilised for the manufacture of hay, green manure feed, or as pasture. Along with containing a variety of micronutrients, including crude protein, rich carbs, and vitamins, it is also utilised for grazing. It has the potential to furnish livestock, such as cattle, sheep, and horses, with a high-quality feed that is rich in nutrients, so fostering the growth and wellness of the animals.

Additionally, alfalfa Grass is frequently utilised for planting purposes in urban greening, lawns, and garden landscapes around the world. The stunning blossoms and verdant leaves of this plant have the potential to enhance the quality of the environment and to raise the significance of ecological landscapes.

The process of drying off lucerne or grass

Alfalfa grass is a fodder that is of good quality and is utilised extensively in animal husbandry. Because of the significant amount of moisture that is contained in lucerne grass, it is necessary to undergo a drying procedure prior to storing and transporting it.

The majority of lucerne grass is dried naturally by air drying or blowing at the moment; however, the drying speed is slow, which results in a substantial loss of nutrients and affects the flavour of the hay. Alfalfa grass loses its value as a commercial and feeding crop as a result of this, which also affects the amount of feed that cattle consume. Additionally, there are grass processing plants that are specialised in the use of specialised drying equipment for high-temperature drying. However, the investment required for these plants is often large, the amount of energy consumed is high, and the drying process is complicated. The development of heat pump dryers has not only simplified the process of drying lucerne grass, but it has also made the operation more energy-efficient and environmentally benign. This article provides an introduction to the drying process of lucerne grass, using the JIMU heat pump drier as an example:

Adjust the temperature of the drying room to sixty degrees Celsius, and let the items to dry for a period of one hour;

2. Continue to heat the material to a temperature of up to 55 degrees Celsius, dry it for two hours, maintain the relative humidity at 35%, and dehumidify it continually;

3. Continue to heat the lucerne grass to a temperature of up to sixty degrees Celsius, dry it for four hours, maintain the relative humidity at eighteen percent, and ensure that the moisture content of the dried lucerne grass is less than fifteen percent.

Note: The technique described above is only for reference purposes and is dependent on the model of dryer as well as the moisture content of the material.

What are the benefits of using heat pump dryers?

In order to function properly, the lucerne heat pump dryer does not require the combustion of any coal, firewood, charcoal, boilers or steam. It only requires a tiny amount of electrical energy to drive the compressor and transmit the heat that is required for drying lucerne from the air. This results in a loss of energy that is greater than seventy percent when compared to the conventional ways of drying lucerne that involve electric heating. In the course of the drying process, the apparatus functions in a completely automated fashion.
