Abstract

A test of the breakage susceptibility of blended corn was conducted with four moisture levels of dry corn (8, 9, 11, and 8.9% desiccant) blended with 24.4% moisture corn to two theoretical moisture levels (15.5 and 20%). The study showed that blending wet and dry corn increases the Stein breakage 0.74 to 4.47 points for a 15.5% blend and 1.54 to 10.6 points for a 20% moisture blend. The breakage in local handling due to blending wet and dry corn is likely to be from 0.1 to 1.7%, which will probably not result in a discount at the time of sale.
