A Webinar scheduled for April 9 will give farmers and grain elevator operators information on keeping their stored grain in good condition.

Last fall's wet conditions meant that many producers had to harvest corn and soybeans before it had a chance to dry to optimal levels. As a result the condition of grain stored in
Iowa
is at risk because of mold and insect problems.

There is no cost to tune in to this Webinar via your personal computer. Charles Hurburgh, Iowa State University Extension grain quality expert, and Dirk Maier, chairman of the Department of Grain Science and Industry at Kansas State University
, will offer information and recommend ways farmers and elevators can ensure the quality of their stored grain.

The Webinar starts at
11 a.m.
and will cover:
• The current grain management and quality situation at
Midwest
grain elevators.
• Grain quality practices that can minimize damage and subsequent quality management problems.
• How to condition high-moisture grain to prevent further damage, maintain quality in storage and maximize safety by preventing dryer fires.
