One of the things we here from many of our customers is how much better their corn dries down and that grain storage problems go away. I don't have independent testing to prove this, but in apples, melon, and many other fruit crops, high calcium content is highly correlated to longer storage life.
Could use of SuperCal 98G and SuperCal SO4 have prevented this disaster?
One of my friends sent me this picture reportedly from Northwest Iowa:
Whether your a corn farmer, cooperative member, employee, or consumer grain quality should be as important as quantity. As a corn farmer and cooperative member, if you can't get the grain to market you lose, as an employee of the cooperative being exposed to that much mold, bacteria and fungus can't be good, and as consumers we all lose, since most of it will be blended in with good grain and end up in our food.
If anyone knows anymore information about this picture, I'd love to talk with you, we may be able to help. High quality and high quantity start with the soil!
