Soybean drying and storage

by Wayne Flanary, regional agronomist, 660-446-3724

Poor fall weather has many soybean fields containing higher than normal grain moisture levels. The best harvest moisture is 13 to 15% moisture to reduce field loss and maximize weight.

When soybeans are binned too wet, spoilage is likely. The oil that is contained in soybeans makes them more susceptible to spoilage. For winter storage, soybeans should be stored at 13% moisture or less.
