Federal government websites always use a. Therefore, it is not recommended at this time that the yield monitor be used as the only yield measurement tool in on-farm research studies. With a yield monitoring system installed on your stripper you can shorten the evaluation of crop varieties and the effectiveness of chemicals and fertilizers. GPS technology and computing tools have already changed the way you manage your farm business. Evaluation of a cotton stripper yield monitor.

Stripper Harvester Preparation
Taylor, Randy - Oklahoma State University. Uniform distribution of the seed cotton across the upper section of the conveying duct requires proper adjustment of the front and side tabs on the high-velocity air nozzle and factory-installed vanes that direct airflow across the inside of the duct. Conveying harvested seed cotton from the header to the storage basket Separating green bolls and heavy foreign material from harvested seed cotton Distributing seed cotton uniformly across the width of the conveying duct before the onboard field cleaner A harvester uses the force of gravity to separate green bolls and heavy trash at the lower and upper ends of the conveying duct. Yield monitor error varied with location and cultivar but averaged Generally, wider saw-to-grid bar clearances reduce the amount of foreign material removed, as well as the amount of seed cotton rejected by the machine. When used to evaluate seed cotton yields for a replicated variety trial, the yield monitor did not report the same yields or statistical groupings by variety as did the reference scale system.
