Description

The drought conditions sharply cut the quantity of corn at a time when demand was increasing at a rapid pace. Drought also creates grain quality issues such as the threat of aflatoxin, low test weight, loss of soybean protein and oil, and other problems. Current data shows that some predictions were right and while others were not. The emergence of food safety as a major focus of all food/feed industries presented some new challenges as well, because aflatoxin is classified as an Adulterant by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The impact of the drought on grain quality and grain processing

The drought conditions sharply cut the quantity of corn at a time when demand was increasing at a rapid pace. Drought also creates grain quality issues such as the threat of aflatoxin, low test weight, loss of soybean protein and oil, and other problems. Current data shows that some predictions were right and while others were not.
