Wednesday, October 29, 2014 FARMERS INDEPENDENT, Bagley, Minnesota -- Page 26 ,Tips By Jim Stordahl Clearwater County Extension Producers in the region could be dealing with late maturing~ I-o ~,=h moisture corn this fall which means they will have some decisions to make. Ken Hellevang, NDSU's Fxtension Service Agricultural Engineer offers the tbllo~ing advice on how to deal ~tla late nmturing COITI. Corn reaching maturib~ about Oct. 1 normally will dry slowly in the field due to cooler ambient temperatures. Standing corn may dry about 1.5 to 3 percentage points per week daring October and 1 to 1.5 per ~eek or less during Novembel Corn has a moisture content of about 3,) percent when it reaches maturits. 11" it has a rnoismre content of 32 percent on Oct. l, it ma? dry to only about 22 percent moisture b5 Nov. 1, assuming normal vxeather conditions. Field normalb is more economical until mid October, and mechanical high temperature drying is normally more economical after that. Fo leave corn m the field for drying, you need to be sure the corn stalks and shanks are strong because field losses can range fiom minor to severe Therefore, you need to compare the cost of dr2ying versus losses associated Harvesting, drying, with leaving the corn in the field. To estimate the propane cost per bushel per point of moisture removed, multiply the propane cost per gallon by .02. For example, the cost to remove 10 points of moisture using $2 propane is 40 cents. Dividing the propane cost by the corn price provides the percentage of corn losses that will equal the &ying cost (40 cents divided by $3 equals 13 percent). Also, verify the impact on insurance of leaving the corn in the field. Storage in a poly bag is a good storage option, but it does not prevent mold growth or insect infestations. Grain should be dry when placed in a grain bag. Storing higher moisture com in a bag should be considered very short term storage and only done at near freezing temperatures. At moisture contents exceeding about 25 percent, ensiling may occur at temperatures above freezing and prevent the corn from being dried and sold in the general market. When storing in bags, select an elevated, well drained location with the surface prepared to prevent the bags from being punctured, and run the bags north and south so solar heating is similar on both sides of the bags. Wildlife can puncture the bags, creating an entrance for moisture and releasing the grain smell, which attracts more wildlife. Monitor the grain temperature at several locations in the bags and repair the punctured bag.

Because the drying capacity is extremely poor at temperatures below 35 to 40 degrees, little drying typically is possible using a natural air system after Nov. 1. Adding heat does not permit drying wetter corn and only slightly increases drying. The primary effect of adding heat is to reduce the final corn moisture content. When outdoor temperatures average near or below freezing, cool the corn to 20 to 25 degrees for winter storage and finish drying in April to early May. Limit the corn depth to about 22 feet to obtain an air flow rate of 1 to 1.25 cubic feet per minute per bushel, which is necessary to dry the corn before deterioration occurs. Turn fans off during extended periods of rain, snow or fog to minimize the amount of moisture the fans pull into the bin. Frid and storing late maturing moisture corn Using the maximum dryingquality.
