      Chemical composition of any crop residue varies depending on several factors among, which may include species, age of residue or period of harvest, physical composition including length of storage and harvesting practices [13, 14]. Agricultural residues are produced as a waste product from food crops such as maize, wheat, sunflowers, and so on. picture of various levels of small grain residue. Take this with you to your fields to compare your levels of residue with these pictures. The effectiveness of ground cover depends on both the amount of crop residue and its distribution. Evenly distributed residue provides the best protection. It’s easy to over-estimate residue levels.

    The plot with standing residue emerged quicker and healthier, while the plots with little residue had few, if any, seedlings emerge. This leads me to believe the residue protecting the soil offsets the draw on soil moisture, even with the live grain crop pulling moisture from the soil to fill seed. To help farmers estimate crop residue biomass yield, Washington State University has developed a Residue Production Calculator. Crop residue estimates are based on peer-reviewed equations that describe relationships between residue and grain yield for dryland cereal and legume crops grown in the inland Pacific Northwest (iPNW).

    Burning of residue was an attractive option because of the lower fuel costs associated with residue management. Bahrani et al. () conducted a 3-year study in Iran to determine the effects of different residue management options on grain yield and SOC. In the southern provinces of Iran, burning of residues is a common practice (Bahrani et al.

This report examines the costs for alternative grain residue collection systems for corn and soybean production in Iowa. All machinery field operations, fuel, other inputs, and labor requirements are identified for the base case with no residue harvest, and for residue harvest by stacks and large round bales, with the owner's equipment and for custom harvest.

The costs for systems for corn and soybean production in Iowa are examined. All machinery field operations, fuel, other inputs, and labor requirements are identified for the base case with no residue harvest, and for residue harvest by stacks and large round bales, with the owner's equipment and for custom harvest.

These five cases were developed for corn and soybeans for conventional and Cited by: 1. are short. Collection cost estimates varied from a low of $/ton for loose chop har- vesting of corn stover to $ for giant rectangular bale systems.

Stackwagon systems were the next lowest cost alternative at $/ton. Loose chop systems are not con- sidered a viable alternative because of high storage and handling costs.

Dry edible bean residue can be grazed following bean harvest. The residue typically has higher levels of protein than cereal grain residue and is more digestible. Field pea, chickpea, and lentil residue.

These legume residues can be grazed. However, the amount of material remaining following harvest is somewhat limited. Variable costs include operating costs, she says.

The field site was historically operated under a no-till system in a wheat-corn-fallow crop rotation. The predominant soil type was Blackwood loam.

The strip trial was a pairwise (side-by-side) comparison of field peas vs summer fallow with nine replications (total of 18 strips, each 60 ft x 2, ft).

With adoption of reduced tillage systems, many producers are realizing the negative effects of tillage as they see the soil and water conservation benefits of leaving the residue on the soil surface.

Losing just 1 foot of grain on the surface is a loss of about 13% of the grain, or $39, if the grain value is $4 per bushel and $78, at $8 per bushel. Use a cover to prevent water infiltration. Drainage is critically important in grain storage.draw activated sludge system for wastewater treatment.

In this system, wastewater is added to a single “batch” reactor, treated to remove undesirable components, and then discharged. Equali zation, aeration, and clarification can all be achieved using a single batch reactor. To optimize the performance of the system, two or more batch.
