A multi-harvest system for hay

A multi-harvest system for hay

JTI rapport (39): 139 pp

A review is presented of the anatomy and physiology of plants, factors affecting the process of drying forage crops, forage losses, total harvesting losses, respiration of the plants, microbiological activity, available time, total biological losses, various aspects of barn drying (energy requirement, flow resistance, volume of air needed and bulk density of the hay), methods and equipment for drying in the field and in driers, including solar driers, and for measuring air temp., incident solar radiation, air flow rate, static resistance of the hay bulk, etc. Haymaking experiments were carried out in 1981, in which the date of harvesting, weather conditions, botanical composition of the crop, organization of the work, labour requirement, crop yield, nutrient value of the hay, the pressure, degree of saturation and volume of the drying air, load, energy requirement and the importance of orientation of the air intake of solar driers, were determined for the first cut, and first and second aftermath. The performance of solar collectors and driers was evaluated.
