Do peas dry easily in an Opico dryer. With the lack of sun and intermittent drizzle, I'll have to get on and cut them at 18% before they go completely flat. Will they need two goes in the dryer like beans or come down easily under 15 in one go?

Dried some for a neighbour last year in the mobile dryer. I got them down from 17.5%. I kept the heat on just a little bit more than I would for wheat but I didn't get any problems. The neighbour didn't complain so they must have been alright.
They are very dusty but not difficult like beans are to dry.

Wheat down to 17.4% this evening so hopefully the peas have followed.
