2019-11-25 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.
2019-11-20 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.
2019-11-20 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.
2019-11-08 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.
2019-11-07 Flail mowed corn stubble in the bait crop of the GLBRC. Corn stubble was located in the 30' closest to the woods on the North, South, and East sides of the GLBRC. Flail mowed the northern portion of the Productivity Study in the GLBRC near the white farm house.
