Harvesting and drying

Plain text source: 
To minimise losses consider: cutting as low as practical to gather as many of the pods as possible using reduced ground speeds to keep shatter loss to minimum (4 - 5 km/h) using relatively low cylinder speeds to reduce grain damage, and select relatively high fan speeds to effectively clean the sample using belt augers wherever possible to minimise cracking and damage to the grain... Both oil content and protein level are usually calculated back to a 12% moisture content basis... Separated hulls are included...
