    Analysis of Corn Stover Harvesting Equipment and Corn Stover Storage Methods

    Authors: , , , ,

Abstract

Research was conducted at the Ag Engineering and Agronomy Farm and the ISU Dairy Farm Complex in the fall of 2009. The research equipment, a John Deere 9860 STS combine and an AGCO 4790 large square baler, were prepared in the Ag Engineering/Agronomy (AEA) Farm shop with updated biomass processing attachments and a hitch that would allow for the baler to be pulled behind the combine during field operations. Initial testing was carried out on the Marsden Farm in an area designated for the Advance Machinery Group.
