In this third installment of our Agronomic Design Insights video series Video, Terry Snack, a Case IH Combine Product Specialist, focuses on how the Agronomic Design principles of the Case IH Axial-Flow® combines and corn heads can help reduce ear drop and loose kernel loss.
How is harvest progressing in your area? How has your Axial-Flow combine helped you minimize loss?
Snack says if you find just one or two fallen ears behind your combine, that can easily translate into a two to three bushel per acre potential loss.
The video shares how the Agronomic Design of the Axial-Flow combine and new 4000 Series corn heads provide a more efficient harvest:
- Uniform Crop Flow – Larger diameter stalk rolls with point-to-point knives provide superior feeding and processing.
- More Grain Savings – Patented corn saver louvers and row unit divider sealing keep more corn in the combine.
- Gentle Threshing – Patented transition cone and rotor provide gentler crop acceleration and grain-on-grain threshing.
- Faster Harvesting – Higher capacity gathering chains allow increased harvesting speeds in high-volume crop.
