Abstract

Growers of identity-preserved crops desire to keep grain separate throughout the production process. Earlier research has demonstrated that some locations in a combine such as cleaning and threshing areas harbor relatively smaller amounts of grain, but require relatively large amounts of time to clean. Omitting clean-out in some areas and flushing residual grain with new grain in the first grain tank full may lower commingled grain concentration to acceptable levels for some customers.
