Today is the day! Its really really cold, about -5 degrees. The snow is not good, but it was only white on the yard, in the shadow.. Let`s harvest the Mais!

Fill me up, again.. The mais was really nice, pretty dry, 30%, pretty good to be mais in sweden, and it gave somewhere between 7-10 tonnes.. Better than last year, and it was good last year. ;-)

Trouble.. In a dip of the field the mais was not quite ready, it could have some week to develop.. Not ready Mais is the same as 2 metres high, green and soft material, and i can say, the combine do not like 9 metres og crop, that isn`t developed yet.. Mais everywhere, and everything is stucked.. Bad end of a good day.

WOW!!!!!! Why you use the wheat header to harvest corn? Have you good results with this?? Have you to harvest many hawith this combi???

Very interesting Christian, I have never seen pictures of maize harvested with a conventional header front.

Jontiras, maybe they dont have alot of maize to harvest, so cant justify the purchase of a specialist maize front?

Regards,

TC ;-)

Re: Waiting for the perfect day..
Sweden has not yet a climate good enough for combining maize. Some in the south and even our area tries with smaller quantities, but latest research shows bad economy. We have to have the 2-3 degrees increased temperatures that science talk about in the debate about global warming to think maize is that intresting crop. But good years it can be very good, and other years a catastrofy!

Thanks Lennart for that info, makes sense I guess as I always think of Scandanavia being a cooler area ;-)

Hello.
As Lennart said, we don`t have that mucj yest, but a real mais header is absolutely intrsting. Specially now, after filling up the whole 600 with "the plant", a real header crops only the Mais.. So we have to see.. A neighbour bought a 6 rpws header this year, but the 600 is to wide, we have to have at least 8 rows.
JDEERE:We are gonna dry them, then most of it is sold to a large company that produces dog food..

here in Belgium are the conditions for growing maize a lot better. yesterday we harvested our. it was very goed, 27,6% and 14,9ton/ha

Re: Waiting for the perfect day..
With Tom's figures it is very intresting to combine, and dry, maize, but with yields under 10 ton/ha and moisture over 30% it's more economical to grow wheat or barley as feed for pics and cows.

But it is always fun to try something new!
