This year has been a challenging year for crop production, especially corn, with above-average temperatures and below-average rainfall. Minimizing yield losses during harvest operations is even more important. Harvest inefficiency reduces overall yield and can cause future problems because of volunteer corn
Corn has been growing in a hot and dry summer, which will certainly limit grain yield in 2022. Thus, adjusting combine settings can be very helpful in reducing yield loss during harvest operations. Now is the time to prepare for harvest by getting equipment in optimal operating conditions.
