Abstract: The aim of this study was to evaluate and to compare the performance of three aeration strategies for stored corn as for occurrence of molds and electrical conductivity of grain: continuous aeration; night aeration and aeration under equilibrium moisture content conditions between the grains and the ambient air. Two tests of aeration with dry corn grain (11% w.b.) and wet corn (17% w.b.) were done. Grain samples were taken during testing for counting of molds and measuring of electrical conductivity of grains. Wet corn stored had increased incidence of molds more than dry corn stored. It was observed that the Fusarium spp. showed higher scores, Penicillium spp. showed development and Aspergillus spp. occurred with lesser frequency. Aeration strategies employed did not affect the electrical conductivity of corn stored because there was no significant difference in electrical conductivity values between the aerated grain and non-aerated grains.
