Abstract
To harvest the crop efficiently the combine operator needs to spend pre-harvest time maintaining, adjusting, and setting the combine. Some Iowa growers will face special harvest-time issues this fall, those include: Gullies and rills may have been created by intense late summer rainfall and hail-damaged areas. Areas affected by adverse weather should be scouted before harvest for the size and condition of ears as well as gullies or holes that may have formed. Fields with wetter corn may have delayed harvest; scout and consider stalk strength before making the decision to delay.
