Corn: Adjust combine ground speed and cylinder speed to minimize trash and broken kernels in hopper. This involves operating at a slow speed, using a lower gear than normal, and then gradually increasing speed up to the point that trash and broken kernels enter the hopper. Increase fan speed to blow out immature and broken kernels.

Peanut: Adjust combines to prevent pod damage.

Sorghum: No specific recommendations for mycotoxin management.
