Extension report II John Cunningham, County Extension Director 839-2518 or 1-800-279-2518 LETTING CORN FIELD DRY CAN BE MONEY-SAVING STRATEGY Dale Hicks, agronomist with the University of Minnesota Extension Service, prepared the information below. With Minnesota's corn crop maturing about two weeks ahead of schedule, producers may be money ahead to let their crop dry in the field until the end of September. Doing so can reduce or eliminate artificial drying expenses. Grain is drying rapidly and will continue to quickly drop in kernel moisture content with the air Dr. Gregory J. Peterson Specializing I temperatures that are likely to occur during the next two weeks. This can reduce drying costs and possibly increase profitability. In addition, field dried grain should have a high test weight. Field drying carries some risks. Harvest losses are likely to increase when corn is combined at lower Machine losses increase at lower kernel moisture levels because of snapper roller shelling and grain cracking. Grain cracking may also lower corn storeability and quality. When machine losses are less than two percent, the savings in drying cost kernel moisture levels, due to ear droppage and machine loses. The potential for preharvest ear droppage due to corn borer tunneling in the ear shank is low this year, since the corn borer infestation is very light. However, warmer temperatures could cause stalk rots to develop more quickly and reduce stalk quality, which would increase lodging and harvest difficulty. is greater than the value of the lost corn. This makes it economically feasible to let grain dry in the field to moisture levels substantially lower than normal harvest moisture levels. Growers should evaluate stalk quality and the potential for ear droppage in deciding when to harvest. 1998"C ROP STORAGE CHALLENGL The low grain prices, large amount of the 1997 crop in storage and the expectation for a large new crop all result in a very tight grain storage situation. A number of considerations are important. The first consideration is the condition of any 1997 stored grain. Check stored grain for moisture, temperature and insects. Corn stored for more than one year should be 13 percent moisture or less and soybeans should be 11 percent or less. Dry any grain which is wetter than this as soon as possible. If the grain, needs to be moved to dry it or get it into a bin equipped for aeration, consider running it through a grain cleaner to remove fines (small pieces of kernels or foreign matter) and some of the insects. To check the stored grain for insects, inspect the outside of the bin, the grain surface, and samples taken from below the grain surface for line insects and insect damaged grain. At the same time, check the grain moisture, temperature and cleanliness. If you find insects it is likely that the grain is too warm, too wet and/or contains too many fines. The first step for controlling a grain insect problem is to cool the grain by operating the fan at times when the outdoor air temperature is less than 60 degrees .Fahrenheit. Grain temperatures above 60 degrees are ideal for insect reproduction and growth. The amount of time required to cool a bin of grain depends on the airflow delivered by the fan. The grain storage situation will likely require the use of all available facilities, including some not originally designed for grain storage. It is tough to beat a round bin with aeration for good grain storage. But in a year like this with too much grain and too low price, it is worth considering converting fiat buildings, (machine storage buildings, warehouses or even livestock buildings) to temporary grain storage. Some things to consider in this conversion is whether the building can keep the grain clean, dry and free from rodents and birds. Some buildings may need additional wall reinforcement. A grain liner, portable bulk heads or even metal grain bin rings can be used to enable the building walls to withstand the pressure of the stored grain. Aeration is imt for grain ill fiat storage. Perforated metal or plastic ducts with air blowing into the ducts and out the top of the grain works best for grain in fiat storage. Ordinary plastic drainage tile doesn't work very well because it doesn't have enough perforated area for good air movement. Try to keep duct lengths to less than 100 feet to reduce problems with non-uniform air distribution. Unused tower silos can also be used for grain storage. The silos need to be checked to be sure the walls can withstand the pressure of dry grain. The grain needs to be dry and some type of aeration should be provided. Before filling, plan how the grain will be unloaded. It is critical that the grain be unloaded from the center of the silo to avoid uneven pressure on the silo walls. Getting the grain into the silo without grain damage can be a challenge. One of the best options for filling silos with dry grain is a DISTRICT REVENUES AND EXPENDITURES BUDGET District Numr FOR 1998 - 1999 1997-98 ^AL REVENUF AND TRANSFERS 1,086,822 31,827 35,055 1997'-98 ACFUAL EXPmDITURF AND TRANSFFJ II 1,027,659 36111 40,237 #371 .: /UNE,1998 ACTU FUND BALANCE 321,868 (4,284) (0,904) The 3Iystery Begins Will you be an FUND II II General ' ( require a lot of power, but they should storage is available at the get dry grain to the top of the silo with Office. relatively little kernel damage. adults "think first about wl,,w children are like and then cv-_ i environment and experienC?., rn tune with clUP" characteristics." foOdlL" To create rich experiences ,.n child and less stress in p.ff'M learn what you can about u ,]ltl''g p,j the living room while the babt- -jlmk'l Your own attitudes, reaC 'GI " taut too. - t actions are lmpor 2' children who want your t,-t !1,.,  1 do almost anything to get lt. 1 t bel s  " react m a way tha P  they got your attention, c :."-iiiit1 they will do it again and ,av"  positively to those things Y * - repeated!

Doesn't listen to my requests to pick up toys. 1 year, 4 years, 8 years 2. Aggression first appears in this age child. 16 months, 3years, 10years 3. Can see another person's point of view. 1 year, 4 years, 7 years 4. Separation anxiety is prevalent. 9 months, 1 year, 3 years, 7 years Who cares when these stages occur? Hopefully everyone who has a child in their lives. Knowing what to expect from a child at any age will provide parents with a better idea of how to guide and motivate them. Probably everyone would know that tantrums are common among 2- year-olds. But did you know that l-year-olds can actually fear their baths? And that children don't fear personal danger until around age 7? It's no wonder children do what they do when you consider what is going on inside their heads. The 1- year-old who screams and runs outside naked isn't trying to get his parents arrested, he's trying to avoid that scary bath. Likewise, the 3-year- old who heads out into the street to chase her ball probably isn't being willfully disobedient. She's simply not able to think in terms of what harm may come to her if she's not careful around the street.
