Moisture Content Charts

Chad Lee, Extension Agronomist, University of Kentucky

A grain moisture chart was just updated for producers this fall. Dr. Sam McNeill calculated the Equilibrium Moisture Content (EMC) for corn, soybean and wheat. The charts identify the moisture that each seed will approach at a certain air temperature and relative humidity. For example, corn will approach 11.3% moisture content at 70 degrees Fahrenheit (21.1 degrees Celsius) and 50% relative humidity. Soybeans will approach 8.8% moisture content at 70 degrees Fahrenheit and 50% relative humidity.
