Ear Molds Leave Challenges for 2012

In episode 12 of Corn College TV season 2, Farm Journal Field Agronomist Ken Ferrie addresses a problem that took hold across the Corn Belt in 2011—ear molds.

“Ear molds can lead to dockages at the elevator or even refusal of the grain,” Ferrie says. “You can get an estimate ahead of harvest to look for signs of ear molds so you can be prepared.”
He says fields that showed ear molds from harboring in residue should be considered to be taken out of corn-on-corn rotations for awhile.
“Also, be cautious of storing grain with ear molds yourself. It may have passed inspection in the fall, but by summer it could have fallen out of condition. Grain from moldy ears is hard to store and hard to dry.”

  I`ve used this device for anticellulite massage. My hips look better after two months of using. I advise Markelov`s simulator to all women with similar problems.
