Twenty-six years of Des Moines, Iowa, weather data were used in a computer simulation of ambient air drying of fungi-resistant and fungi-susceptible corn hybrids treated with Rovral® fungicide. Drying of 20 and 24% moisture corn harvested 15 October was simulated. Compared with the susceptible corn hybrid (DF20¥DF12) under the same conditions, the resistant corn hybrid (FR35¥FR20) had lower airflow requirements and used less fan energy. Rovral fungicide-treated corn had a lower rate of grain deterioration, required lower airflow rates, and used less fan energy than untreated corn.
