Abstract

Modern technologies of hay harvesting in bales of high compactness require improving the operations of the active field wilting, compacting, final drying and storing. It has been found that to obtain high-quality hay and increase of its output per unit of area, mowing with flattening should be carried out no later than in the beginning of the budding phase and field operations must ensure the speed of water return at 1.42— 1.56 % per hour. Compactness of compression by piston balers with a moisture content of 18-20 % should be not less than 220 kg /m3 for large bales.
