Abstract

Three yellow dent corn hybrids (FR1064xLH59, FR600xFR1087, and FR618xLH123HT) from the 1994 crop, one hybrid (FR1064xLH59) from the 1995 crop, and two hybrids (FR1064xLH59 and FR618xLH123HT) from the 1996 crop were used to study the effect of storage time and storage temperature on starch yields. Samples of all of the corn hybrids were stored under one of two conditions: in a 4°C cold room or under a shed exposed to ambient conditions. The hybrids from the 1994, 1995, and 1996 crops were stored for up to 24, 12, and 3 months, respectively. No significant differences were found between starch yields of the hybrids with respect to storage time. However, there was a significant difference in hybrids from the 1994 samples. Starch yields of two of the three corn hybrids (from the 1994 crop) stored in the 4°C cold room were higher when compared to the starch yields of the same hybrids stored at ambient conditions.
