  • Harvesting and storing ear corn

    Most of our corn in LaRue County is shelled off of the cob, but we still have several farmers that pick and store ear corn. Here is some helpful information from UK Extension Agricultural Engineer Sam McNeill to keep in mind when harvesting and storing ear corn.

    Corn that will be harvested and stored on the ear should be allowed to dry in the field as long as weather is favorable and stalk strength is adequate. During field dry-down, be aware that moisture in the cob is much higher than the kernel for corn above 15%.
