A new publication from the South Dakota Cooperative Extension Service can help you manage wet corn.

ISDSU Extension Extra 5056, "The Cost of Wet Corn at Harvest," is available at this link: agbiopubs.sdstate.edu/articles/ExEx5056.pdf. Or ask for it at your county Extension office.

South Dakota Cooperative Extension Marketing/Farm Business Management Educator Heather Gessner, along with Extension Agricultural Engineers Steve Pohl and Dick Nicholai wrote the publication.

The authors describe a range of options and examples for corn producers who may face slowly maturing corn this season.

Gessner said that the lack of growing-degree day units and other weather issues could set some corn growers back this year.

"The publication is designed to give producers options and to provide them with clear-cut examples of what steps can be avoided to save money, even with the odd weather of last summer," Gessner said. "Using the publication as a guide will help producers weigh options and prepare as they move closer to harvest season."
