Getting your winter wheat off the field as quickly as possible is extremely important if you are looking to maintain quality. The longer that crop remains in the field exposed to the elements, the greater the chances are that germ, vigour and overall grade quality can be negatively impacted. That’s were combine efficiency comes into play in a big way. Getting the maximum bushels per hour through your machine means getting that crop off quicker. Material other than grain – M.O.G., has the biggest impact on how well and how quickly your combine does it’s job. I spoke to Les Hill of the Prairie Agricultural Machinery Institute about M.O.G., the impact it can have and how to deal with it to make harvest go as smoothly as possible.
