A decision support system was developed to assist county agents, consultants, and farmers with the management of field corn (maize). The program includes production and post-harvest recommendations. Management recommendations in the production season section are primarily based on several experts' experience and knowledge. A combination of knowledge-based approaches and numerical optimization techniques are used in the post-harvest section for identifying and evaluating potential storage sites, stored grain insect diagnosis and control, and optimal bin number and size for high- and low-temperature grain drying. The program is currently being used in the field by crop management association technicians and extension personnel who assist farmers with management decisions.
