Row Spacing Won't Limit the Geringhoff Independence Corn Header

As average corn yields are pushed higher and higher, some companies view the traditional row crop corn header as approaching maximum capacity. Geringhoff, a specialized corn header company, has unveiled a new type of corn header that combines aspects of both the row crop type and the solid-seeded type best suited for corn silage. The header model is called the Independence, and is slated for a prototype tour this year.

Shaun Haney got the goods on this futuristic corn header at Louisville’s National Farm Machinery Show. In this video, Derek Molnar, with Geringhoff, explains how the Independence is designed to harvest any row width of corn, including solid seeded, which means farmers don’t have to choose only one direction to harvest. What’s more, Molnar says that this header should easily handle the 220 bushel average corn yields he believes are on the way.
