Considering the time and effort selecting varieties, nurturing a crop and getting it through to harvest, the thought of wasting any of it during the harvest operations seems sacrilegious.
But while some harvest loss is inevitable, keeping it to a minimum while still balancing the optimal harvester field efficiency is key to a successful harvest. Farmers using drop trays behind their harvester are reporting improved harvester throughput, improved fuel economy and lower losses.
Kondinin Group researchers Mark Saunders, Josh Giumelli and Ben White walk through harvesting efficiency and machinery technology in this harvesting Research Report.
