Abstract

The pre-war developments in the growing, harvesting, and marketing of corn in the United States necessitated a carry-over of large corn surpluses from one year to the next as a means of price and supply stabilization. Iowa, alone, had a carry-over of corn greater than all the other corn producing states together. Much of this corn was government owned and stored in large quantities in shelled form for indefinite periods in elevators and specially constructed steel bins. The unprecedented nature of this venture and the likelihood of its return prompted an evaluation of the problems in corn deterioration. The present review attempts to assemble the published information on corn in storage, with special reference to the role that microorganisms, particularly the fungi, may assume in its deterioration.
