The Canola Council of Canada has a new smartphone tool for dealing with issues when combining.
The combine optimization tool offers a step-by-step process to zero in on the issue (such as grain loss or grain sample quality) and then offers the adjustment options most likely to correct the issue.
“In combine adjustments for all crops, we are trying to balance productivity with harvest losses and grain quality but most producers know first hand the particular challenge this can pose for canola harvest,” says Angela Brackenreed, a council agronomy specialist. “We often see an unacceptable level of loss that is frustrating to correct.”
The tool can be found at the Canola Council of Canada website.
