Straw recov­ery is an impor­tant part of the year­ly grain harvest.

Keep on top of things when bal­ing straw – even if they need to be done quickly.

DStraw recov­ery is an impor­tant part of the year­ly grain har­vest. When bal­ing straw, the bale shape, the cut­ting length, and the bale size are all rel­e­vant parameters.

If you are bal­ing straw for oth­ers, whether as a farmer or as a con­trac­tor, it is not only impor­tant to ful­fil each customer’s needs as far as straw bales are con­cerned – in a nor­mal sit­u­a­tion you also want to serve as many cus­tomers as pos­si­ble in the short­est amount of time pos­si­ble. If rain is fore­cast, for exam­ple, then the request calls stack up and good organ­i­sa­tion is required.

Anoth­er point is the doc­u­ment­ing of work for billing.

Who was work­ing where and when? Three days ago which cus­tomer were you with first? Nor­mal­ly pay­ment for straw bal­ing is based on the num­ber of straw bales. How­ev­er, if there are large dif­fer­ences in regard to the time spent with var­i­ous cus­tomers then you can use the auto­mat­ic doc­u­men­ta­tion to help with adjust­ing invoices.

The 365Active Sys­tem can sup­port you in doc­u­ment­ing your straw bal­ing activ­i­ties. A lot of what has been done with the aid of paper and pen in the past is now sum­marised auto­mat­i­cal­ly and sent overnight as a book­ing pro­pos­al. This pro­vides more trans­paren­cy and ensures that no infor­ma­tion gets lost.

The com­po­nent meteoblue Wet­ter Profi can be anoth­er aid. It offers a weath­er fore­cast for the site and rain radar accu­rate to the near­est kilo­me­tre. Numer­ous weath­er sta­tions form the basis for these hour-by-hour fore­casts. This ensures that there are no unpleas­ant (weath­er-relat­ed) sur­pris­es when bal­ing straw.
