2019-11-08 KBS Harvest GLBRC main site treatments G5. 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.
2019-11-07 KBS Flail mowed corn stubble in the bait crop of the GLBRC. Corn stubble was located in the 30' closest to the woods on the North, South, and East sides of the GLBRC. Flail mowed the northern portion of the Productivity Study in the GLBRC near the white farm house.
2019-11-05 KBS Harvested GLBRC G2 Sorghum 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.
2019-11-05 KBS Harvested GLBRC G6 Micro Plots (fertilizer and no fertilizer plots) all replications. 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.
2019-11-04 KBS Ryan Anthony flail mowed corn stover in G1 main plots: Reps 1, 5, 4, 2, & 3. Corn stover was mowed into windrows so that they could be bailed. The 6 rows (15 ft) in the west micro-plots of each rep were not mowed. Equipment Used: JD 7420a tractor and Loftness 15 ft Draper Windrower Shredder. Howard Straub III (from the KBS Dairy Center) baled the corn stover on November 4, 2019. Equipment Used: JD 6155M tractor and NH 7060 Cropcutter round baler.
