2018-11-20 KBS Harvested 815 lbs from treatment G2 rep 4, 840 lbs from treatment G2 rep 5 of sorghum. This small strip was harvested to get feed stock sample and to aid in drying all the material.
2018-11-08 KBS Harvested GLBRC main site treatment G6, miscanthus plots, all reps (1, 2, 4, 5, 3). Plots were harvested with a JD 7350 self-propelled forage harvester equipped with a JD 676 Kemper cutting head. Plant material was chopped into and weighed with GNUSE forage wagon equipped with load cells. Cutting height of remaining plant stubble was 4 - 6 inches in all reps. Grab samples from each rep was placed in paper bags weighed for wet weight and placed in plant dryer and reweighed to determine percent moisture for each replication.
2018-11-07 KBS Harvested GLBRC G2 Micro Plots (fertilizer and no fertilizer plots) all replications. Unfertilized plots were cut to 83.2 ft as shown on map. Harvested with JD 7330 tractor using the 7.6 ft wide Kemper head and Wintersteiger biomass harvester weighing system. The middle 7.6' of each micro-plot was harvested. Plot weights were obtained from the on-board Mirus computer weighing system, by Juniper Systems. Cutting height of plant stubble was 4 - 6 inches. Grab samples from each rep was placed in paper bags weighed for wet weight and placed in plant dryer and reweighed to determine percent moisture for each treatment and replication.

Grab samples from each rep was placed in paper bags weighed for wet weight and placed in plant dryer and reweighed to determine percent moisture for each treatment and replication.
2018-10-25 KBS Harvest GLBRC main site treatments G5, G7, G9, and G10 main plots. All plots were harvested with the JD 7350 self-propelled forage harvester equipped with a JD 676 cutting head. Plant material was chopped into a Gnuse forage wagon that is fitted with load cells to determine harvested biomass. Cutting height of remaining plant stubble was 4-6 inches in all reps. Grab samples from each rep was placed in paper bags weighed for wet weight and placed in plant dryer and reweighed to determine percent moisture for each replication.
