Harvest loss kit

Harvest loss kits can be a great tool for farmers, whether it has a logo on it or not. You could buy a kit, or just collect the items below and you can have your very own harvest management kit! Just be sure to include:

o A pan with deep sides (any size, just need to be able to calculate the area)
o A volumetric cylinder or scale
o PAMI’s Combine Seed Loss Guide for reference

Instructions:
o Find out the sieve width or cut width and then using PAMI’s Combine Seed Loss Guide, follow the steps to calculate your seed losses.
