The pneumatic grain conveyor on a plot combine was evaluated and its crosstube grain injector redesigned to increase material throughput to a rate that would avoid plugging during operation in high-moisture corn. The new design allowed a throughput of 77 kg/min (169 lb/min) of high-moisture corn during tests.
