Re: case ih 8010
We couldnt run 36ft here Andy, even 30 ft is a bit big here in places. Most fronts here would be 24 - 25 ft, which seem to suit our crops & terrain better.

Re: case ih 8010
our farm is very undulating TC we can manage with 30ft. I guess here 30 ft fronts are considered small. Most new machines are all 36ft with a nieghbour running one of these pictured with a 39 or 40 ft comb.
our area has an average of just over 2.5t HA thats why we use big fronts.

Ok,

Here wheat averages 5.5 - 6.5 tonnes / ha (some crops up to 9 tonnes / ha). Paddocks are smaller too (average about 30 acres but as small as 10 -1 5 acres).

Must have stunned you with the above blank post (lost for words LOL) :-D

Our rainfall is (generally) reliable, ranges from 13- 14 inches in some of the drier areas to 20 - 30 inch where I am, up to 40 -45 inch in the dairying areas. Reliable rainfall, heavier soils & more European / NZ style management = 9 tonnes + per hectare wheat crops ;-)

Check out post #377021 in my NZ Arable Crops thread (Crops, Field Crops) for some pics of high yielding wheat crops; these crops in my pics were estimated to go over 10 t/ ha (irrigated).
