THK ICTHMlMf IWAID Harvest methods affect rapeseed yield URBAN PITTMAN irUgc Research mum yields of good- rapeseed can be ob- if special attention is to proper harvesting B. farmers swath their id crops. Correctly swathing reduces shat- losses and may prevent ice frost damage to late- ig crops. te Letbbridge Research it was found that ig should be carried out ibout 30 per cent of the within the pods have from green to light as stage the seeds can shed easily between the and forefinger. Most of Is vriH he slightly green ittain about SO to 60 per loisture. swathing was done pods contained more than 60 per cent moisture, seeds shrivelled, oil content5 was low, and yields were re- duced. Yields and seed quality were no better from rapeseed swathed near maturity, with about 20 per cent moisture, than when swathed at an ear- lier stage. The crop should be cut fair- ly high, just below the level of the seed pods. Such swaths tend to settle into tile stubble and be anchored by it against wind damage. Combining rapeseed requires careful operation and machine adjustment j reduce loss of seed through the combine. A recent survey of rapeseed fields in Al- berta showed that seed losses of three to five bushels per acre are not uncommon. Losses were calculated on the basis that two seeds per square inch on the soil surface equals one bushel per acre.

To seed tosses at harvest time, adjust the pick- up speed and forward travel so the swath is not torn. Reduce the combine cylinder speed to about two-thirds that used for cereal grains. Open the con- caves so that stems and pods are broken no more than is ne- cessary to free the seeds. Since rapeseeds are light- weight, fan speeds should be reduced and fan louvers par- tially dosed to cut down on wind. R is better to shake the seed out of the chaff than to blow the chaff out of the seed. Consideration should be given to prevailing wind speed and direction relative to the di- rection combine trawl when adjustments are made. Travel slowly so that sieves are not overloaded and proper separa- tion can be made. Examine the straw row be- hind the combine several times a day and make necessary ad- justments to sieves and fans as weather conditions change. 12 volt Battery Rental?
