Introduction The 2010 harvest will remain in the mind of many farmers as they reflect on a year that could have been even better if grain yields and quality had been maintained... The formula for calculating a machinery work rate is: Work rate in Ha / Hr = (Speed (km/hr) x width (m)) x efficiency % 10 If harvesting a crop at 5 km / hr and using an 14m harvester and operating at 80% efficiency, this farmer should be able to harvest a crop at 5.6 ha / hr... The formula for calculating field efficiency is: Field efficiency % = Time spend operating the machine x 100 Total time spent in the paddock Total time spent in a paddock generally includes emptying the grain, travel, fixing breakdowns, turning, overlapping and undertaking maintenance...
