MINNEAPOLIS — For many, the 2019 cropping season resulted in corn and soybeans that were higher in grain moisture than normal. As a result, corn and soybeans in storage may be poorer in quality and/or deteriorate rapidly if not managed properly this spring. Wet grain also poses a greater risk for grain bin accidents to occur.
Dr. Ken Hellevang, Agricultural Engineer at North Dakota State University, will present his recommendations for managing corn and soybean in on-farm storage on Tuesday, March 31, 2020 from 8:00 to 9:00am CST.
Topics covered will include natural air drying, safe storage periods, drying soybeans with supplemental heat, and grain safety procedures. Time will be allotted at the end of the webinar for Dr. Hellevang to address questions from attendees.
