Corn harvesting begins with some fields green-chopped and quickly proceeds to silage
harvest, high moisture corn and dry corn harvest. Often stover is harvested after
dry grain harvest and used as bedding material. Increasingly, corn fields are being
looked at for biomass harvest as well.
This season is an important time of the year when all of the challenges of the growing
eason come to fruition. It is truly when farmers "make their money" and the effects
of their management decisions during the season are realized.
