Key Performance Highlights:

  • At a steady pace of 5 mph, the header showcases its prowess by harvesting approximately 6,148 bushels per hour in fields yielding 225 bushels per acre
  • Accelerating to 6 mph, its efficiency peaks at around 7,357 bushels per hour

In a news release, Bish Enterprises expressed their appreciation for the dedicated and talented Bish Team members, local farming families, and collaborators who played roles in the success of the project.
