AbstractThe combine rasp-bar cylinder is the major shelling mechanism of the field harvesting machinery used in the Corn Belt. The cylinder shelling efficiency is excellent when operated at recommended levels of grain moisture and machine settings. Corn buyers and processors, however, claim that grain damage during the shelling process has detrimental effects on the finished products.
