Description

Growers of 38-cm (15-in.) narrow row com typically use either a wider row cornhead or locally modify an existing head to this row spacing. A three-year field experiment compared visible machine losses of a 76-cm (30-in.) cornhead used on 76-cm (30-in.) and 38-cm (15-in.) rows and a single gathering chain 38-cm (15-in.) cornhead used on 38-cm (15-in.) rows. Total machine losses were divided into head and threshing/separating losses.
