INTRODUCING THE BPIMPORTS STUBBLE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

Stubble Cruncher Results

INCREASE YOUR HARVESTING EFFICIENCY BY 41%

As researched and documented by the GRDC (Grains Research & Development Corporation – GRDC stubble management guideline No. 4) – There is an increased cost with harvesting low due to a reduction in harvest efficiency and increase in fuel use and machine hours.

On average, header efficiency will be reduced from 9.5ha/hour to 5.7ha/hour, a decrease of 41%, when harvest height is reduced from 60cm to 15cm. In economic terms, research by SFS indicated that higher harvest heights provide additional savings of approximately $7.50 per 10cm of extra height.

SO, WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
BY CUTTING HIGH AND HANDLING YOUR STUBBLE WITH THE STUBBLE CRUNCHER OR TWISTER, YOU’LL SEE THE FOLLOWING BENEFITS…

REDUCE YOUR RISK

Reduce your risk of inclement weather affecting crops by harvesting quicker.

On a 2000ha cropping program, you can potentially reduce your harvest by 14 days, removing the risk of being downgraded from malt barley to feed barley or from premium noodle wheat to feed wheat due to bad weather.

Protect yourself from the spread of grain downgrades.

INCREASE HARVESTING EFFICIENCY

2000ha Cropping Program Example

From the above we can see the benefits are an increased harvesting efficiency from 5.7ha/hour to 9.5ha/hour – 41% increase, potential reduction in harvest time – cut harvest by up-to 14 days a season (in a 2000ha cropping program, 140 hours saved, 10 hours a day), reduce harvest operating expenses, less maintenance & wear and tear on your harvester and extend the life of your harvester.

ECONOMIC BENEFITS

140 hours x $450p/h harvesting cost = $63,000, minus Stubble Cruncher dry hire 2000ha x $16.00 = $32,000

Not only do you get the stubble management and risk reduction benefits mentioned but you’ll also save $31,000 on your harvest operational expenses.

HARVESTER BENEFITS

The possibility of getting an additional one year operation from your harvester and still have less hours on your harvester after 3 years of cutting high (630 hours) compared to 2 years of cutting low (700 hours).

IMPROVE YOUR STUBBLE MANAGEMENT PROGRAM

By cutting higher during harvest and dealing with your stubble post harvest using the Stubble Cruncher or Twister, you’ll see the below benefits during seeding –

Greater emergence and seed germination due to greater soil to seed contact

Greater moisture retention in your soil

Greater stubble breakdown and carbon content in your soil

Stimulates an early germination to allow a good knock down

Potential reduction in fertilizer requirements

Less blockages while seeding
