The use of grain-drying complexes is established to make possible to start harvesting before the crops are fully ripened, to shorten the harvesting period, to increase the productivity of combine harvesters and reduce production losses. An economic and mathematical model is developed to justify the productivity of grain-drying equipment, taking into account the rate of grain supplied from the field. Simulation made possible to reveal the rational productivity of a grain dryer taking into account a wide range of natural and production factors. The dependence of the operation of combine harvesters on the moisture content of the grain mass is obtained. It is established that the use of crops with different growing periods in crop rotation makes possible to expand the rational range of harvesting equipment and grain-cleaning complexes, to reduce the total cost of production.
