Corn School: Drying Your Corn Effectively


In a year like this, drying your corn properly can involve some legwork. Periods of rain, varying maturities and other harvest delays can all cause variations in the moisture content of your crop. If those variations aren’t addressed properly, they can have an impact on overall quality and test weight. Things like proper calibration of equipment can be critical. Moisture testers and dryers need to be as accurate as possible to be effective.  Drying improperly can cause you significant financial loss so it must be done properly.

In this episode of the Corn School we talk to Helmut Spieser of OMAFRA about how to dry your corn effectively and beneficially to maintain the highest quality and marketability possible.
