A modified swath harvesting technique for rice: Part II. Preliminary economic analysis


, : A modified swath harvesting technique for rice: Part II. Preliminary economic analysis. Transactions of the ASAE 32(4): 1409-1418

An experimental technique for modifying the environment of the grain in a windrow during swath harvesting of rice was shown to yield improved grain quality relative to standard open windrows and to direct harvested grain at low moistures. By influencing the quality of the grain, and hence its value, the modified technique has economic implications for harvesting, transportation, and drying.
