Everybody keeps on saying yield gain with the straightcut, but our 252 outyielded our l130 and l140 by a fair 10bpa, combining took longer on the straightcut but sample was bit cleaner (0.4 dockage difference).
Fuel use per acre was actually higher on the straightcut as well, plus not including the cost of the roundup and heat, we also harvested some not sprayed, woef plugged the combine few times.
Seen some big guys in our area growing lots of 252 and wondered why they swathed so much in harvest but after we were done i knew why. But other peoples experiences may be different, defenatly not selling the swather.
