This question and many more were discussed recently during combine clinics in the mid-west sponsored by Beck’s Hybrids. A good even flow of crop is very important to obtain threshing of material on material in the concave. This improves grain quality yielding higher premiums to the grower. There were many good discussion of crop flow through the combine.
We are currently preparing for a four day training session in Montana for Wheat, Chickpeas, Canola, Barley & Lentils. We will be reviewing the six harvesting functions of a combine & material flow. Refreshing these skills will increase grain quality, grain tank utilization & combine efficiency. Reach out to us to today!
Combine Clinics for Remington Seed were conducted the week of 24 July 2017. These clinics were in western Ohio and central Indiana. The six-harvesting functions of the combine (Cutting & Feeding, Threshing, Separating, Cleaning, Grain Handling, Residue Management) was discussed. The movement of the seed soybean crop from the platform through the combine to the straw chopper showed the importance of properly configuring the combine before attempting field adjustments. Proper configuration results in increased seed quality and combine capacity putting more profit in the grower’s pocket.
