Spencer, IA: (Dec. 31, 2013) – Iowa State University Extension Ag Engineer Kris Kohl says producers should make routine checks every two weeks of corn stored in grain bins. Kohl says regular checks during the winter allow the producer the opportunity to catch emerging problems before the grain becomes spoiled.

Kohl says producers should run the bin fan for several minutes and smell the exhaust to detect any musty odors. He says the grain surface at the top of the bin should be checked for crusting or moldy grain. Kohls says any problems found should be addressed immediately to avoid grain damage and handling problems.
