If you can dry the Corn you can Harvest it even when it has a moisture Content of 30 per cent or higher the specialists said. The Corn is mature at this stage and if harvested the dam age from insects rodents and weather will be less. There Are two major ways of making certain the Corn enough air. One is the use of forced natural air made possible by a fan driven by a motor. The equip ment also can be used to dry Hay and other crops. Using this method Corn with 30 per cent moisture can be dried sufficiently in eight to 10 Days during september october and november. The three factors which de Termine the length of drying Are weather the Content when Corn s stored moisture and the moisture Content when the dry ing process is completed. For tight bins of Corn the and dealers bringing to s22 moisture Content should be Down at Montgomery.
