The combine optimization tool, developed by the Prairie Agricultural Machinery Institute (PAMI) for canolacalculator.ca, will help farmers set the combine to keep losses as low as possible while finding a balance with productivity and grain quality.
The combine optimization tool takes the traditional diagnostic settings flowchart and puts it into a web-based application you can access on your phone. Growers can go through a stepwise process based on the harvesting issue they’re experiencing (i.e. grain loss, grain sample quality or productivity) and review the adjustment options most likely to correct the issue.
CCC agronomy specialist Angela Brackenreed and PAMI program manager Joel McDonald will be presenting on the new combine optimization tool at Ag in Motion. Catch them in the Agri-Trend Knowledge Tent on Thursday, July 19 at 2:00 pm.
