Molds are a concern because they can reduce grain quality and storability. Under some conditions, certain molds can produce mycotoxins, substances that can be harmful to livestock and humans. This brochure explains basic steps to avoid mycotoxins in stored grain. Additional information is available on the Managing Moldy Corn website: www.purdue.edu/cornmold.
Target audience: corn and soybean producers and those who handle stored grain.
