2019-11-25 KBS G2 Harvest {"John Deere 7350 Self-propelled forage harvester/chopper","GNUSE Forage Wagon"} Harvested G2 Sorghum main plots reps (2, 3). Plots chopped into Gnuse forage wagon equipped with load cells. Grab samples were taken from each plot weighed and then placed in dryer to be dried and reweighed for moisture. 4663
2019-11-20 KBS G2 Harvest {"John Deere 7350 Self-propelled forage harvester/chopper","GNUSE Forage Wagon"} Harvested G2 Sorghum main plots reps (5, 4, 1). Plots chopped into Gnuse forage wagon equipped with load cells. Grab samples were taken from each plot weighed and then placed in dryer to be dried and reweighed for moisture. Reps 5, 4 and 1 were the only reps harvested due to ability to dry the material. 4657
2019-11-20 KBS G6 Harvest {"GNUSE Forage Wagon","John Deere 7350 Self-propelled forage harvester/chopper"} Harvested GLBRC main site treatment G6, miscanthus plots, all reps (1, 2, 3, 4, 5). 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. 4656
2019-11-08 KBS G5 Harvest {"John Deere 7350 Self-propelled forage harvester/chopper","GNUSE Forage Wagon"} 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. 4651
2019-11-05 KBS G2 Harvest {"Wintersteiger/Kemper head biomass harvester (7.5 ft):","John Deere 7330 Tractor"} 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. 4648
