Com Harvesting Equipment
(Continued from Page A2B)
The no-till plot was planted into
tye stubble and hairy vetch. The
same applications were applied.
The com picker draws the stalk
into an area that pinches the com
and pulls it off, similar to how it is
done by hand in the field.
According to several growers,
the challenge is coming up with a
machine that can differentiate
two harvesters demonstrated to the crowd included one that uses a rotating
blade and the other with a conventional chopping silage head.

In a separate demonstration, sweet corn growers were provided information on
several varieties of bicolor sweet corn planted both no-till and conventionally tilled.
The demonstration at the test plots was on a corn picker by a company based in
between useful, marketable eats
and those that won’t sell on the
auction block or at the farm mark
et Trouble is, according to a grow
er from Lancaster County, the
machine processes all cars equally.
Variedcs need to be planted, if
using the picker, that mature at the
same dme.
Also, according to an equipment
demonstrator, growers need to
consider several factors before
deciding to pay about $26,500 for
the machine, including materials
and labor cost and sweet corn
market prices, before deciding on
the cost effectiveness of the picker
compared to hand-picking.
The growers had a chance to
look into the wagon at the sweet
com picked by the harvester.
Many noted that the sweet com ear
size was sufficient.
