Description

Management of the 2005 Iowa crop is presenting varied challenges for quality and storage. In southeast Iowa, drought-induced aflatoxin in corn is the primary issue. In NC-NW Iowa, larger than anticipated corn and soybean crops combined with large old crop carryovers and new demands of the ethanol industry have caused significant amounts of corn to be placed in outdoor piles. Management of aflatoxin and outdoor/temporary storage is presented. Statewide, rapid maturity and field drydown reduced soybean protein levels sharply compared to the previous 3 years.
