Harvesting, handling and storage

  • Bill Butterworth


It was clear that the advent of the combine following the stationary thresher resulted in a straw that was comparatively bent and bruised. It was unsuitable for many traditional applications such as thatching. The advent of rotary combines has produced a similar jump in the condition of straw; many varieties break up into shorter lengths and so much so that it is difficult for some types of baler pick-up to gather the swath. Many types of rotary baler find it difficult to hold these short lengths without significant losses back onto the ground.
