Successful Desiccation Decisions in Peas and Beans

Harvest Header Losses in Soybeans

A Research Update from PAMI

Today’s combines are well designed to minimize threshing losses when harvesting soybeans; however, there can still be significant losses at the header (accounting for 80% of the losses).

PAMI has conducted several field-scale research projects to determine which factors affect header losses most in order to provide farmers with management strategies for reducing risk by minimizing losses.
