- Grain density of corn is positively correlated with yields of certain dry-milled fractions. Grain hardness of corn determined by density correlated positively with yields of total grits and with second- plus third-break grits (P < 0.01), and negatively with yields of degerminator fines, low-fat flour, high-fat flour, and total flour (P < 0.01). Grain density and percent moisture were found to be negatively correlated.
