New Solutions to Handle Your Corn Stalk Residue

How can we handle the high amounts of corn stalk residue we've been seeing at harvest? That is the question Beck’s Practical Farm Research (PFR)® team and Beck’s PFR Innovation Lead, Jason Webster set out to investigate this harvest. 

Starting with a John Deere combine, the PFR team tested an eight row corn head. Half was equipped with the standard John Deere Snapping Rolls while the other half was outfitted with the 360 CHAINROLL™ from 360 Yield Center. The goal was to determine which cut through residue most effectively and prepared the field up for the best possible conditions at planting.

The results? You’ll have to watch the video below to find out!

Beck's Hybrids PFR program conducts more than 75 different studies across multiple locations (500+ acres) to learn how different management practices and new technologies perform in field environments. Simply put, it is research focused with the farmer in mind. Click here to see more studies from the 2015 PFR book.
