Stirred and unstirred natural-air corn dryers were monitored during two drying seasons. Data are presented on airflow resistance, bulk density, fines production, and fines movement. Stirring initially decreased airflow resistance 50%. Airflow resistance increased in stirred bins and decreased in unstirred bins as corn dried. Stirring produced a small amount of fines and moved fines toward the floor
