The objective of this study are to analyze the drying characteristics of corn, and then determine the thin layer drying models which represents the characteristics of thin layer drying of corn seed. This experiment were conducted using a laboratory scale fluidized bed dryer. The drying condition was controlled at four-level temperatures of 40 °C, 50 °C, 60 °C and 70 °C and at air velocity of 2.2 m /s. Characteristics of corn drying in this study indicate that only occurs the drying rate decreased which decreased continuously with decreasing moisture content to near equilibrium moisture content (drying after 2 hours). Two thin layer drying models, namely Henderson-Pabis Model and Page Model were fitted to the experimental data. The results show that the Page model is a best fits model which represents the driying characteristics of thin layer drying of corn seed.
