Re: JD 4440

Please post some photos of the crop growing in this field.
I know what corn and soeybeans look like living in Illinois
USA but what does mint root look like???????????
:-\ OH and how do you harvest it? :-[
Re: JD 4440
I currently have no photos of this field .
Our method for harvesting it is to take a swather and knock
down the plant (it gets about waist high when its time to
harvest) letting it sit in a windrow for 1-2 days to dry a
little , once it has dried we bring in our tractors with
pull type forrage harvesters and our mint tanks , we chop
and blow the plant into the tank then take the tank the the
mint still where the contents of the chooped up plant are
steamed and the vapor then travels to a condensor then to a
seperator where the mint oil is seperated from the water .
