1 Purpose and Scope

1.1 These data allow estimation of the time required for normal oil content shelled corn to deteriorate to the point where 0.5% of the original corn dry matter has been lost. This corresponds to the maximum time shelled corn can be stored before storage fungi damage causes the USDA market grade of the corn to be lowered one grade level because of an increase in total damaged kernels.
