Kind of depends on how you want to dry, hang whole plants? Tiers of trays holding shucked and bucked? Dehydration capabilities can help speed too

Looking into large scale drying for hemp as well. Been looking into sealed shipping containers, using dehumidifiers, a/c and sensors to keep temp and rh @ ~ 60/60. I’m just curious if anyone has done this, or something comparable for drying. Specifically i’m wondering about drying times, air movement, and filling capacity.
Thanks!
