I have had my 50 bu + flax crop swathed and in the windrow for about three weeks now, it has had 3'' of rain on it. The seed is now dry enough but I can not get this straw to feed through my 2388 combine. It keeps wrapping on everything, the auger head, the beater. I am running out of warm dry days to get this 80 ac in the bin. Any suggestions??

Could the greeness be a headline fungicide issue? It keeps the plants alive longer and in lentils, canola, and flax it keeps the stems green forever and harder to straight cut.
