Hammer Down Harvest
J.D. 9750STS stripping wheat @ 23%M near Adairville, Western
Kentucky. 28ft Shelbourne Reynolds stripper header.
75bu/ac (5t/ha) Pioneer 2552.
Re: Hammer Down Harvest
Nice photos. Do many people use stripper heads in your area?
I think there a good idea. How come you taking your wheat
off at 23%? We try to take wheat off at around 14%. I was
just wondering. Keep the photos coming. I'm from Southern
Ontario incase your wondering. Have a good one.
Re: Hammer Down Harvest
We use stripper headers and harvest at 23%M as we are able
to double crop our soybeans on the wheat straw. By using the
stripper headers we advance harvest by one week, versus
using a conventional cutting table. We can afford to dry our
wheat down to 14% as the ambient temperatures are high in
June (it doesn't take much fuel)and we get a 1bu/ac/day
yield advantage by early double crop soybean planting. The
stripped wheat straw conserves moisture and aids soybean
Both Shelbourne Reynolds and Massey Ferguson stripper
headers are used.This practice is very common in
N.Tennessee, W.Kentucky and S.Indiana. I will post a picture
of double crop soybean planting in the coming week.
Re: Hammer Down Harvest
Ok. I'll wait to see weather you plant into the standing
straw or knock the straw down.
Re: Hammer Down Harvest
hey agcofan........they just leave the straw
standing......and use spinners on the back of the combine to
spread any straw that comes out of the combine.........then
go hammer down with a drill straight into it :)

a lot of straw on the ground makes it harder for the planter
to get depth when planting into wheat stubble


Re: Hammer Down Harvest
Thanks for answering. I guess there really isn't any trash
on the ground when you use a stripper head. I think there a
good idea.
