Dale Hicks, University agronomists have University of Minnesota Extension experimented with trials on frost . Agronomist, has developed damaged corn and drying rate. The information regarding the effect of frost damaged corn carried 5-9% frost before maturity on corn grain higher levels of moisture from yield, dry down, and grain quality. Frost before grain is mature can kill some or all leaves of the corn plant. The effect on yield depends on how much leaf area is killed and the stage of corn development when the frost occurs. When only a portion of leaves are killed, those not killed will continue to function and contribute to grain yield if good growing conditions exist after the frost. Below is a table indicating the eaield effect of a frost killing all yes at various growth staged. Percent of total yield produced by corn growth stage Days Percent of Growth after Total Stage Pollinetlon Yield Early Dent35 68 Dent 40 77 Late Dent 45 85 Half Milk Line 50 92 Mature 55 100 If all the leaves are killed at the late dent stage when 85 percent of the yield has been produced, the yield reduction due to the complete killing frost is 15%. Grain dry weight increases as corn continues to mature normally. Therefore, a frost before maturity has less effect mid-September through October, but by October 23, both the frosted corn and the normal corn were at a 20% kernal moisture. This study indicates that grain on immature corn killed by frost will field dry if fall drying conditions exist.
