Managing Corn & Soybeans in on-Farm Storage to Maximize Grain Quality

Challenging harvest conditions last fall has led to grain being stored on-farm with higher than normal moisture content. A March 31 webinar will provide information for maximizing grain quality and minimizing health and safety risks.

One of the residual effects of the 2019 growing season is that we have some wetter than normal grain in on-farm storage. This situation poses two threats to producers. The first threat is that the quality of the grain will be reduced if the bins are not managed properly. The second is that wet grain significantly increases the risk for grain bin accidents to occur. An upcoming webinar will address both issues.
Managing Corn and Soybeans in On-farm Storage to Maximize Grain Quality and Reduce Safety Hazards will be held Tuesday, March 31, 2020, from 9 to 10 a.m. Ken Hellevang, an agricultural engineer at North Dakota State University, will present his latest recommendations for managing corn and soybeans in on-farm storage to maximize grain quality and reduce safety hazards.
Specific topics include natural air drying, safe storage periods, drying soybeans with supplemental heat and grain bin safety procedures. Ample time has been allocated for Hellevang to answer specific questions from participants.
