- Biomass Baler

The biomass harvesting system currently in development at AGCO is a one-pass system that marries proven combine technology and the durable, reliable Hesston large square baler to collect and package clean corn cobs, husks and leaves into 3-foot-by-4-foot square bales. The time-saving system requires just one pass through the field for both grain and crop residue harvest. In addition, it provides a biomass product that has minimal silicon content (dirt) as compared to other collection and storage options.
