Evaluation of Brassica Napus and Brassica Carinata Losses during Harvesting: Three Years of Experience

L. Pari, A. Assirelli & A. Suardi
Mechanical harvesting losses are often considered the main responsible for low yielding in the Brassica cultivation. Thus, the needs to provide reliable values of the real harvesting losses, through on-field tests were pointed out. CRA-ING conducted experimental evaluation of product losses on Brassica carinata and Brassica napus, during three years, in north, centre and south of Italy, using different combine and head losses solutions. As results, it was pointed out that: 1) the crop losses...
