Soybean webcast covers storage recommendations

It's unfortunate, but some growers will work hard all year producing a healthy crop of soybeans and then decrease their value through poor harvesting, drying and storage practices.

The latest "Focus on Soybean" webcast, "Soybean Storage" by Kenneth Hellevang, Ph.D., professor of Ag and Biosystems Engineering at North Dakota State University, was produced to help practitioners in the United States dry, handle and store soybeans in a manner that helps maintain their value.

In this talk, Hellevang discusses:

--The required moisture levels for safe soybean storage;

--Keeping the optimum harvest moisture content;

--The value of cooling stored beans;

--Recommended handling methods;

--The hazards of reconditioning soybeans; and

--Recommended practices for both natural air and high temperature drying.

This 24-minute presentation is open access through March 31. Viewers can also opt to see a three-minute executive summary version of this presentation. This shorter executive summary version is permanently open access courtesy of the United Soybean Board.
