Harvesting of Miscanthus straw
After 3-rd year of growing Miscanthus plantation is ready for harvesting. By this moment in Ukraine its yielding is about 15 tn/Ha.
3-rd year plantation in November looks like this.
We harvest Miscanthus straw early spring after 3-rd year.
After 4-th year of growing Miscanthus plantation in Ukraine its yielding is about 20-22 tn/Ha of dry biomass.
Miscanthus bales are stored on open spaces covered to secure from wet.
We also use Claas Jaguar 850 for harvesting with simultaneous processing of straw into 10-25 mm chips (see video clip below).
