Grass Seed Harvest in New Zealand
Here a few photos I took on my recent trip to New Zealand (Late January 2007) of some grass seed being harvested.

The first one shows the grass seed awaiting harvest in the swath, with the headers working in the distance.

This one shows a Case IH (Think it was a 2366) & a John Deere 9000 series (not sure of the model).

The Case is picking up two swaths at once.

Not sure Rony, I think the overall yield of the ryegrass seed in this paddock was about 3 tonnes / hectare. They were both discharging into the same trailer, so the seed from each machine wasnt being kept seperate.

Here in Tasmania we tend to get 1.5 - 1.7 tonnes / hectare, with the odd really good crop yielding in excess of 2 tonnes / hectare
