Wet and dry
corn program

Adams has focused on procuring local corn and commodities since the early 1960s. Our Wet and Dry Corn Program can provide several benefits for your operation. For example, our program allows you to begin harvesting corn earlier, allowing for fall tillage. We encourage corn producers to deliver corn above 24% moisture with favorable shrinks at this level. With the early harvest start, field loss is minimized and there’s no more worrying about early snowstorms delaying your harvest.

Corn

Plant those Long Season Hybrids with Confidence, and Take Advantage of the Yield Boost with These Key Benefits:

Fall tillage of corn stalks is more easily accomplished. There is also a much better chance of utilizing that valuable residue for grazing before snow cover – allowing pastures to rest in the fall.

Longer season corn normally has the potential to yield more than short season corn. With our Wet Corn Program, you have the flexibility to maximize your yield potential on your acres – giving you a wider choice in hybrids.

ALCC has extended hours, fast dumping time and flexibility for your delivery needs. Avoid long lines at the elevator and get a jump-start on your harvest. Early harvest conditions are typically better than dry corn harvest conditions. In addition, daylight hours are longer during high moisture corn harvest.

Early harvest allows you to maximize your out-of-field production. Our Wet Corn Program minimizes the potential loss of bushels from ear drop, corn borer, stalk rot, wind, lodging or an early winter snowstorm. Delaying harvest to allow grain to dry naturally increases the odds of a weather event costing you precious yield. A 4-year study at Purdue University showed that maximum kernel dry weight occurred at 28.4% moisture. The study also found kernel dry weight decreased 1.1% for every point of moisture under 25% – that means if you harvest at 16% moisture you will lose 9.9% of your production, compared to harvest at 25-28.4% moisture.

By selling your corn directly out of the field, you eliminate several factors in the process, which ultimately saves you time and money. You’ll save bushels by handling your corn less. In addition, you’ll save money by not having to truck corn to your bin, auger, dry, condition, re-auger and re-haul your corn. Our Wet Corn Program eliminates the high cost of drying and avoids possibly over-drying your corn. There are no storage fees when you deliver high moisture corn directly to us.

You can avoid the expenses associated with building new handling tools such as additional bin sites, replacement augers and drying facilities. Our Wet Corn Program minimizes the amount of equipment that you need to own. In addition, you can use your equipment over a longer harvest period – and spreading that workload out over a longer period creates less stress on your operation.
