The cereal harvesting is finishing in our village, so we would like to publish some pictures about this job because it is the high-priority task in whole La Mancha. We finished it, but it wasn't easy because all combines have a lot of work. Our friend Juanjo, with his three Claas combines is very busy because he has to harvest cereals of a large number of customers and everybody is impatient for the harvesting (we are taking care of our crops all year and we wish an ideal harvesting).
We began with barley harvesting (volley barley). After a few working days, the results have been absolutely impressive: the average is of 4,500 kg/ha. A harvesting day, Juanjo invited us for dinner on the field. We could speak with other of his customers, the old people could remember the past, when they were kids. This happened thanks to a Juanjo's picture of Claas Matador where we could see the harverster owner and Boni (the eldest man in the group)... it was really funny.
Some days after the begining, we harvested triticale and pulse vegetables. The triticale was ready to be harvested as you can see in the spike picture. Regarding pulse vegetables, we had to fix the special tool called crop lifters located in the front of the harvester which is in charge of rising up the grain because it was dragging on the ground. The average of triticale was of 3,300 kg/ha and pulse vegetables average was of 2,000 kg/ha. So, it is a great campaign and we hope to finish with good sales prices.
Finally, we stored some barley to sow them in November.
