South Plains Precision Ag. It helps identify low and high yielding areas in your fields. It calculates your income, cost per acre and it also assists in selecting a corrective action. It improves productivity. GPS technology and computing tools have already changed the way you manage your farm business. The AGRIplan cotton yield monitor for cotton strippers is the latest yield monitoring tool available today to help improve your bottom line.
Proper row unit maintenance and adjustment are critical to maximizing harvest efficiency and preserving fiber quality. Several crop conditions play a large role in determining correct machine settings, such as the level of defoliation, stalk diameter, plant height and width, and stalk and branch moisture content brittleness. Aggressiveness directly influences the amount of seed cotton and foreign material harvested. The more aggressive the harvesting action, the higher the probability is to harvest more foreign material and generate bark. You need to adjust stripper row units to the correct level of stripping aggressiveness with goal of harvesting the least foreign material and causing the least seed cotton field losses.
Federal government websites always use a. Location: Cotton Production and Processing Research. Technical Abstract: The objective of this work was to evaluate the accuracy of a microwave sensor based yield monitor for measuring yield on a cotton stripper harvester and determine if the yield monitor can discriminate differences in yield to the same level as a reference scale system.
This paper is written from an economic rather than an agronomic perspective. The intent is to deliver a case study at a pre-determined business scale to demonstrate the process for conducting investment analysis on header fronts. An economic analysis of the costs and benefits of the inclusion of stripper fronts to disc seeding systems follows. This paper is aimed to complement the analysis of the costs and benefits of disc versus tine seeding equipment which is provided in the paper within this booklet of Swan et al.
