How tough can a guy harvest flax and not worry about it not coming out of the bin for a few days before it gets dryed. Not worried about drying it can go through dryer a couple times if I have too
16 was a bad year for pasmo. It doesn't matter when you put it through the combine after it has been infected. It sounds like you are combining a rock pile and can do serious damage if you run the combine to capacity. Also hard on the fuel bill. I had previous experience with pasmo and hit it with fungicide at 10% flower in 16 for that reason. I (and the combine) could tell where the plane had missed a spot.Any advantage to swathing this time of year? In 2016 we finished straight cutting flax in November and the tough straw did a lot of damage to the combine. Was like putting tree branches through. Part of me says swathed will he worse because it won't dry out as well but then I wonder if the straw won't cure anyway and may rot a bit if swathed. Best case scenario is it will be laying 10 days before I get to combining flax while I finish other stuff, lots of green stems right now but good killing frost in forecast.
