Light-textured soils usually produce earlier crops but heavier soils hold more moisture and tend to produce crops that hold quality longer at maturity.

G92-1115 Corn Quality For Industrial Uses, David S. Jackson Jan 1992

Official standards, however, are only useful as general indicators of grain quality.
