Pfiier A: Co, Inc NewYork,-New York 10017 ' Uorn pickers soon may be in the same corner of the machine shed with the grain binder, the corn shredder, the threshing machine and other farm equipment that has been put aside because more efficient machines have been developed. The corn combine and the picker-she Her are rapidly taking over the job of harvesting corn. In 1956, only 2% of our corn crop was being shelled in the field. In 1963, 16% was harvested by corn combine or by picker-sheller. And last fall, over 25% of the corn harvested was shelled in the field. The reasons are obvious: It costs less to store shelled corn because it takes less space. You don t have to haul the cobs home. Harvesting losses are lower. You can harvest earlier, and dry the gram. Or you can use full season hybrids, and harvest them later with minimum losses. The harvesting stage of crop production is of growing importance, since the big problem of farmers today is what to do with .the crop after they harvest it. Picker-sheller and cornhead sales are way up, and the problem will be getting worse instead of better if you don't plan ahead. Last year, many progressive farmers who switched to shelled corn harvesting had to wait in long lines at the elevator to market their crop. On-the-farm drying equipment, or facilities for wet storage, can avoid this dilemma. At-present,-there ^are three popular methods of handling shelled grain: 1. Ensile it. 2. Dry it and store it. 3. Dry it and market it. 3 *n Smf dVan ff geS °!
