Field day helps dial in soybean harvest

An extension educator says there are three areas farmers can focus on to reduce soybean harvest losses.

“Maintenance, timing, and equipment selection and operation.”

Mike Staton with Michigan State University Extension tells Brownfield maintaining a sharp and aligned cutter bar should be a farmer’s top priority.

“It’s not a problem under really ideal conditions, but if you get into tough conditions a poor performing cutter bar will really cost you money,” he says.
