2012-11-09 Harvest Harvested Corn Stover in the GLBRC, treatments G1, G2 and G3 all replications on 11/9 - 11/10, 2012. Harvested - Eastern 75 feet (30 rows) of each plot, except for G2R1 and G3R1 the western 75 feet (30 rows) was harvested. The remaining 15' (6 rows) area unharvested is the stover non-removal microplot, located on the western 15' of each plot except for G2R1 and G3R1 where it is located on the eastern 15' of the plot. Order in which plots were harvested in 11/9/12 (G1R2,G2R2,G3R2,G2R3,G1R3) - 11/10/12 (G3R3,G3R5,G2R5,G1R5,G1R4,G3R4,G2R4,G1R1,G3R1,G2R1). Stover weights were determined by using scales in the field that measured each axle. Scale info: Intercomp Wheel Load Scales, model #PT300 DW.

2014-04-10 Observation Harvested and cleaned up plots in GLBRC that still had grass standing. Plots that were harvested include the productivity study, switchgrass variety trial, switchgrass n-rate study, and CE study. Illinois study was harvested friday and then cleaned up after harvest was done. All plots were harvested and cleaned up using self propelled forage chopper pulling a Gnuse forage wagon.

2014-10-30 Harvest Harvested Corn Stover in the GLBRC, treatments: G1, G2, and G3 all replications. Harvested - Eastern 75 feet (30 rows) of each plot, except for G2R1 and G3R1 the western 75 feet (30 rows) was harvested. The remaining 15' (6 rows) area unharvested is the stover non-removal microplot, located on the western 15' of each plot except for G2R1 and G3R1 where it is located on the eastern 15' of the plot. Stover weights were determined by using load cell scales on the Gnuse forage wagon pulled behind the JD 7420b and the New Holland 38 Flail Chopper. 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. Estimated harvest time was from 10:30 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. (this estimate is just harvest time it does not include equipment set up and equipment clean up time).

2016-10-10 Harvest Harvested corn in the GLBRC G2 and G3 plots, all reps. Entire plot weight was determined by unloading corn from the combine to a Brent Weigh Wagon, by Unverferth Co. Number of corn rows harvested from each plot were counted and recorded to determine total area harvested. Each plot had 24 rows of corn harvested has the main plot harvest data. Six rows on each side of each plot were harvested with the Kincaid plot combine and was not included in the total plot weight. Moisture and test weights were determined using a portable Dicky-john GAC500 XT grain analysis moisture tester. Corn harvested was G2 and G4 (Pioneer P8906AM) corn hybrid. Estimated harvest time was from 10:30 a.m. - 12:00 noon (this estimate is just harvest time it does not include equipment set up and equipment clean up time). Harvested corn in the bait crop around the GLBRC site: 12 rows of corn harvested on the south and east sides of the bait crop area. The 12 rows were the 30' most southern area and the 30' most eastern area of the bait crop area. Keep are area on ~ 100' on the south side and eastern side for hunting blinds. We did not harvest any of the northern bait crop area today. Estimated harvest time to harvest the bait crop was from 9:30 a.m. - 10:30 p.m. (this estimate is just harvest time it does not include equipment set up and equipment clean up time).

All reps of G5, G7, and G10 were harvested on November 4, 2020. 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.
