Select hybrids
for drydown
drydown characteristics can
be as important as yield
when selecting a corn
Traditionally, growers
chosen their hybrids on
the basis of yield, stan
dabihty and drydown for
earlier harvest, and in that
But escalating fuel costs
have increased the emphasis
on drydown, as the cost of
drying a bushel of gram is
getting more expensive
annually, offsetting a few
extra bushels in yield.
The trick is to select
hybrids that yield high and
drydown quickly. Corn
breeders at Funk have made
significant advances in both
yield and drydown m a wide
range of maturities,
researcher John Malcolm
says, but drydown
characteristics still vary
from hybrid to hybrid.
Early maturity hybrids
usually drydown quickly but
yield less per acre than later
maturity hybrids, which are
normally wetter at harvest.
“Keep a record of how fast
your hybrids drydown and
the percent moisture at
harvest,” Malcolm says.
“Then use this information
with yield data to select next
year’s hybrids.”
The cost of drying corn a
few moisture percentage
points is rising.
For example, a hybrid
harvested at 28 percent
moisture now must yield
approximately four to eight
bushels per acre more than a
hybrid harvested at 22
percent moisture to pay for
drying costs and provide an

equal net economic return,
Malcolm says.
Growers with a con
ventional continuous flow
batch drier can expect to
burn over 18 gallons of
propane to dry 130 bushels of
com from 28 to 22 percent
That’s an additional $lO
per acre, or $1.67 for each
point of moisture removed
from 130 bushels, that must
be added to the cost of the
fuel needed to dry 22 percent
com to 15.5 percent or less.
Corn begins to lose
moisture in the field as it
approaches physiological
maturity, the point where
the plant adds no more dry
weight to the kernel. This
coincides with formation of a
“black layer” at the tips of
the kernels.
To estimate a hybrid’s
drydown characteristics,
Malcolm advises making
periodic corn moistive
readings from shortly after
black layer formation
through harvest, using a
portable moisture meter or
by taking a com sample to a
local elevator for testmg.
The readings should be
taken from a composite
sample of at least 10 ears.
Sound crop production
management programs can
keep crop stresses that delay
maturity and harvest to a
Malcolm has three
suggestions to conserve
energy consumption and
lower costs. Select drying
systems on the basis of
energy efficiency; and use
natural air drying and low
temperature drying as much
as possible.
