Re: Sweet Corn Harvesting
Excellent pics GC :-)

The harvester seems to be cutting the corn fairly high (leaving alot of residue behind) compared to how I remember the paddocks here looking.

The machine McCain used here in Tas was a Byron / New Idea with the haulout bin towed behind the machine (check out thread below for an identical machine)

So, you contracted in Queensland too?

Cheers,

Yo Tas

Yes we used to contract in Queensland too. (peas, green beans and sweet corn) Finished 18 months ago as its too dry. We were contacting in Kiwi as well so decided to make that our home as it rains here!!

Yes I know the old 4 row new ideas well. We used to run 2 of them in Queensland but then replaced them with the one 6 row. Also had a green bean front for it, so it was a good way to eliminate a lot of gear

Re: Sweet Corn Harvesting
This particular variety H5 grows very tall, more like maize, so the cob is around shoulder height. Good to harvest as you are a long way from the ground.
