Dr. Steve Green harvesting Miscanthus at one of his research plots at the ASU Farm.
The harvester gathers the biomass material at the header, chops it into fine clippings, and then blows the material into the rear of the machine where a sample weight is taken. The sample from each plot is then emptied into the specially modified Bobcat bucket.
A lot of data is being collected from the miscanthus plots currently being harvested. This data includes the plant height, biomass weight, and moisture of each plot. Once analyzed, the miscanthus biomass is composted in piles over the winter (hence the use of a dump trailer) and later spread as an organic matter amendment on the fields.
