Turning downed corn into harvested corn PDF Print E-mail

It’s unusual at best to see a combine using a pick-up head, picking up a windrow in a corn field. But when 60-70 mph winds hit the area Oct. 18, corn fields that hadn’t been harvested took the brunt of it, with full ears of corn falling off the stalk onto the ground. Farmers have reported losses from 30 to 100 bushels per acre from the wind. South Fork Harvesters have been experimenting with raking the corn stalks, stover and ears of fallen corn into a windrow and following behind with the combine, picking up the windrow in an effort to harvest the fallen ears of corn.
