Why would you artiﬁ cially dry a crop that normally dries in the ﬁ eld? One reason would be late planting due to double cropping or wet ﬁ elds, or poor fall weather may result in soybeans that are too wet to store. Second, harvesting early, when soybeans are still wet, reduces ﬁ eld losses, harvest losses, and market weight losses and allows more time for other fall ﬁ eldwork.
