THE IMPORTANCE OF DEALING CORRECTLY WITH CHAFF AND STRAW
In operations where the use of straw is not the practice, CX8000 combines provide the optimum treatment of straw and chaff. Conservation tillage, an arable farming method of growing interest, consists of planting after minimal or even zero land tillage. It reduces labour time and can lead to increased crop yields and reduced soil-erosion. One draw-back of this farming practice may be pest problems created by moisture trapped in crop residues. This makes it vital to have a good consistent chop and full width even straw and chaff distribution, especially when working with the large headers common on CX8000 combines. Avoiding chaff or straw accumulation also helps prevent seed drill blockages.
