With harvest upon us, a video available at Grainews.ca takes a look at ways in which Prairie farmers can get the most out of their combines this summer and fall.
In the short EQuipTV video posted in June, Grainews machinery editor Scott Garvey takes us to a Prairie Agricultural Machinery Institute (PAMI) combine clinic at Brandon, Man.
At the combine clinic, PAMI’s combine performance expert Les Hill discusses how farmers can get the most out their combines this fall.
It’s a common misconception, Hill says, that farmers can expect perfect performance from their combines by following the book settings for a given crop, when in fact the optimum settings vary by crop conditions.
At times, he says, combine settings may need to be tweaked two or three times a day.
