HARVEST RECORD SMASHED PDF Print E-mail

decemberjanuary news1New Holland Agriculture has reclaimed the Guinness World Records title by harvesting an impressive 797.656 tonnes of wheat in eight hours with the 653hp CR10.90, the world’s most powerful combine.

The record was set on August 15 at HR Bourn and Sons’ farm in Grange de Lings near Wragby, Lincolnshire, and the fi eld was sown with Santiago wheat in the autumn of 2013, before it was chosen in May 2014 for the record breaking attempt, which meant that it represented real world growing conditions.

The record breaking day’s harvesting, which started at 11:17am, was characterised by changing weather conditions, with the ambient temperature ranging from 18-21°C and light showers occurring from 17:30 onwards. The CR10.90’s average throughput was 99.7 tonnes/hour and peaked at 135 tonnes/hour in a crop yielding an average of 9.95 tonnes/ha and an average moisture content of 16.2%. The record was achieved using a mere 1.12 litres of fuel per tonne of grain harvested, with the straw chopper engaged throughout the day.
