CASE STUDY 3 – USA Farm

Wheat farm of 1,000 acres in Washington State used bale direct for the first time with a Case combine and Hesston baler.

One of the most important benefits of the bale direct process was weed seed collection, but in addition the farm was able to supplement its 3-ton per acre crop with a massive 5 tons per acre of baled residue, which was sold for stockfeed, production of straw logs for heating and pellet manufacture for horse bedding, generating welcome additional revenue. The process also assisted in erosion control (no need to burn stubble, which can contribute to soil erosion.) Important savings were also derived from reduction in time, fuel and labor inputs.

"The system worked great! We can completely control our residue, and for us 'no-tillers' this is a great relief."
- US farmer, Curtis Coombs
