Regular price R$ 100,00

In this module we will address the main agronomic factors that will affect the time of harvest. We will go through abiotic factors with rain, hail and winds, in addition to factors of the plant's own physiology such as growth habit, type of culture, point of maturation in addition to the influence of pests and diseases that will interfere with our harvest. All this content will be essential to understand the interaction of the environment with the harvester and how we should act in adverse conditions.


What I will learn in this module:

  • Size of culture;
  • Habit of growth and form of maturation;
  • Difference in harvesting “grains” and “seeds”;
    • Mechanical damage, loss and cleaning levels
  • Ideal point for harvesting;
    • Very green, very dry plants and green stem
  • Humidity variation during the day;
  • Influence of pests, diseases and weeds;
    • Bushing, green stem, moisture
  • Abiotic factors;
    • Frost, winds and rains
