During a 5-year period (1957–1961), the presence of NO2 gas produced from corn silage in concentrations considered hazardous was observed on 42% of 554 Minnesota farms. The highest incidence of positive samples occurred during a drought year, 1959 (78%), and the following year (55%). Temperature and rainfall variables were associated with the production of NO2 gas as were certain soil properties including texture, organic matter, available phosphorus, and potassium.
