Ethanol Today Magazine - Corn Yield Trending Higher

Looking back at the growth from hundred bushel yields as recently as 1978 to today's numbers, Pioneer Hi-Bred representative Jerry Harrington credits a whole package of changes in corn breeding and production practices, each adding incrementally to this marvel of increased productivity and efficiency.

"Part of (the yield trend) is genetics, part of it is enhanced weed control, better agronomic traits, introduction of transgenic traits, better understanding of seed placement," Harrington said.

Pioneer Hi-Bred's water use efficiency corn varieties will be introduced this decade, Harrington noted.
"We have the Drought I initiative, which will be available soon and takes advantage of a native corn gene," Harrington said.

That means there will be a lot of grain flowing into the bins, possibly before it's reached full maturity, and that means, ironically, that high grain moisture levels may be a bigger issue than normal, says DuPont Pioneer sales and marketing public relations manager Jerry Harrington.

"When corn reaches maturity late in the season, field drydown is slower due to cooler air temperatures," Harrington says. "Properly drying this year's very wet, lower quality corn will be essential to avoid further quality reductions."
He offers the following tips to preserve grain quality in this year's crop:
Use a rotary or gravity screen or perforated auger housing section to screen lower quality grain before drying it. "This will prevent foreign material and broken kernel fragments (or fines) from blocking airflow essential to uniform grain drying and storage," Harrington says.
Dry lower quality grain lower than normal. The usual drying recommendation is 14% or 15%. But with grain that is more prone to kernel damage and broken cobs, Harrington says, mold can be a bigger problem. Drying it more helps keep this problem at bay.
Dry at a lower temperature. Higher-temperature drying can cause stress cracks and more kernel breakage, Harrington says. "The amount of stress cracking depends on initial grain moisture, rate of moisture removal, maximum grain temperature reached in the dryer, and rate of grain cooling," he adds.
...
You'll lose 10% of your bin capacity, Harrington says, but it will "eliminate broken kernels and fines that accumulate in the center," he adds. "Next, level the grain in the bin to minimize moisture accumulation at the top of the grain."
Keep the grain cool. "Cool grain as soon as it's dry to within 10 degrees of air temperature, and continue to aerate for 10 to 14 days to ensure grain moisture equilibrium has been achieved," Harrington says.
