Abstract in English:
The baling of dried fibre sorghum introduces some specific problems due mostly to stalk development, height, rigidity and to the volume of green biomass to process. To improve storage and to reduce transport cost, the main aspect to consider is the achievement of a satisfactory natural drying of the plant on the ground. Following these consid- erations, CRA-ING developed a back mounted harvester prototype, connected to the rear three-point linkage of a re- versible drive tractor. Such equipment permits the cutting and whole plant conditioning, leaving it spread on the ground, without forming windrows, so to make full use of the solar radiation for drying. When the water contents drops to the optimum value for storing, the product can be collected in windrow and then baled with existing round balers or big bal- ers. The adopted conditioning system is formed by six couples of longitudinal rolls, similar to those used in corn har- vesting, because also the fibre sorghum is a row cultivation; each roll is provided with alternate blades and pads to press and cleave all along the stalk while pulling down the plant. The tests showed that the prototype allows relevant money and time savings in the fibre sorghum chain.
