Description

In years when the growing season is shortened by late planting and/or early frost, some com and soybean seeds are still immature when the plant is killed by frost. Immature crops generally have high moisture at harvest and contain high concentrations of broken seeds (fines) and foreign material. In addition, immature com usually has low test weight and immature soybeans often contain green-colored seeds. This article will cover drying and storage management of these low quality, immature crops.
