This is the combine of the farm. A 2266 Extra. A large walker machine with a 7,5 m header.

Last and most interesting one.
You can see our combine/seedcleaner/seedhauler filling our drill/graincart. Next time we're gonna try unloading on the go. ;-) :-D

Seriously, we we're finishing up a late harvest while at the same time drilling next year's crop. We wanted too plant some of this variety again, and because there was no time to clean it we put it straight into the drill. Fields were next to each other so it worked out great.

Re: 2266 Ukraine 2006
They grow all kinds of crop over there. This farm grows winterwheat, canola, malt barley and sugar beets. The neighbours also grow sunflowers, corn both for silage and grain, clover for cattle feed, buckwheat and oats. I've seen few fields with soybeans.
Farm sizes range mostly from 1 to 3 thousand hectares. Our farm was right in that range. Kind of hard to tell exactly with fallow being turned into crop and very short term leases. There are few farms bigger than that still. Big investors bring in money from other businesses and start farming.
Smaller farmers are there also. Some with 100 ha, some with only few. Just the typical situation in a country that has recently been changed from communism. In that time there were only large "Kolchos" farms with thousands of hectars. Much of that old structure still exists.

Hope that helps. Feel free to ask again.

1.Why do you write "our farm" ?
2. I can't understand : "Kind of hard to tell exactly with fallow being turned into crop and very short term lease"

Hi Krasus,

that "our" just kind of slipped out. I was only working on the farm. But after a few month on one farm I always get attached to that farm. So I feel like it is "my" farm. But I don't own any farm. :-(
