Today's farmer has dozens of corn varieties to choose from. Unfortunately, most of the highest-yielding varieties need a long growing season. That means you may be taking some risk in choosing a high-yielding variety. If your planting is delayed by wet weather, if the summer is cool or if there's not good drying weather in the fall, you may have the problem of storing corn that's not dry enough for ordinary crib storage.
