Corn quality factors affecting dry milling performance

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Many factors affect product yield and performance in corn dry milling operations. However, this study was focused on the physical quality factors of corn, which can be measured prior to accepting or rejecting incoming truck loads of corn. Information about the effect of differences in these physical quality factors on the yield of large flaking grits can aid in the selection of corn best suited for dry milling. Yield of large flaking grits was significantly increased by selecting corn with low breakage susceptibility and high test weight.
