Harvesting crops is hard work, but the advancement of machine technology has lessened the load substantially. In the Farm Machinery: Harvesting Project, you’ll get to weigh and analyze forage samples, examine worn and damaged parts and learn about harvesting bottlenecks.

In this project, you’ll:

  • Investigate forage harvesters, blowers and wagons
  • Learn why adjustments are crucial to avoid delays and prevent crop losses
  • Learn about combine uses and parts
  • Discuss horticultural harvesting equipment related to Ontario crops like hay and straw
