,i Natural-air and low-tempera- are grain drying is not effective cold winter temperatures, to a North Dakota State Extension Service en- ineer and professor. "The cold does not pick up much mois- so the drying times become iohg, months rather weeks," says Ken Hellevang, Agricultural and Biosys- Engineering Department. relative humidity is high, so will only dry to about 20 moisture. When air tem- are near or below freez- the grain should be cooled to 20 to 25 degrees and then turned off." Most grain moisture meters are accurate at grain tempera- 40 degrees. When the is cold, it should be placed a sealed container, such as a bag, and warmed to room before checking the content. At temperatures 40 degrees, the meter read- must be adjusted based on the temperature, unless the me- when the average temperature is about 40 degrees. Corn at mois- ture content exceeding 21 percent should be removed for high-tem- perature drying before tempera- tures rapidly warm during March. Solar heat gain will warm the top of the bin and the south wall to temperatures exceeding outdoor air temperatures. Grain is more susceptible to de- terioration if it is immature or the kernel integrity is damaged. Poor quality grain should be dried to a moisture content about 1 percent- age point lower than good quality grain. Poor quality grain should be monitored more closely during the storage period. There will be a grain moisture content variation among kernels after drying in a high- tempera- ture dryer if there was a moisture content variation before drying. For example, if the kernels vary in moisture between 20 percent have been a few cases where vents iced over on bins of corn that were being cooled at freezing tempera- tures, which caused damage to the bin roof," Hellevang says. "It is recommended to leave a bin fill-hole or manhole unlatched as a pressure relief valve if the air is being pushed up through the grain. If humid air is being pulled in through bin vents at tempera- tures near freezing, provide an unscreened opening, such as the manhole, for airflow." Check the grain every couple of weeks until it has been cooled to 20 to 25 degrees. Check dry grain at least monthly during the winter and wet grain every couple of weeks. Measure and record the grain temperature. Check the grain moisture content and examine the grain in several locations. Search for small changes that arc indica- tors of potential problems. High moisture grain is more and 30 percent before drying, the likely to develop a crust, which variation may be between 12 per- may hide a cavity formed when cent and 18 percent after drying, the grain is unloaded."Thc chance Due to the variations in maturity of suffocating is high if you fall Wilma Jeaton Muir, Ellendale, N.D., Violations of registration pro- visions, $20.
