WARNING: There may be bugs in the programs that are used below,
or in the data files that they read. If you detect any errors, please
contact Steve Verrill at
or 608-231-9375. Thank you.
We provide two kinds of drying schedules --- we list the accepted
schedules for certain common species, and we estimate
appropriate schedules for less common (primarily tropical) species.
The links for the common species are given below, and here is
the link to the
schedule estimation program.
If you already know the schedule code (for example, T6-D2), then you
can go directly to the
code to schedule program.
The source of these schedules is the
Dry Kiln Operator's
Manual, USDA, 1991.
