Most of us would probably rather forget the 2009 crop, at least as far as storage and quality goes. Unfortunately, as we thought it might, this crop just kept on giving – headaches. The wet, incompletely developed and low test weight conditions led to about 50 percent shortening of the normal shelf life, at any moisture and temperature condition. Storage norms were covered in an ICM News article last fall, 2009 Corn Quality Issues – Storage Management.
