A corn harvester is a machine used on farms to harvest corn stripping the stalks about one foot from the ground shooting the stalks through the header to the ground. The corn is stripped from its stalk and then moves through the header to the intake conveyor belt. From there it goes up the conveying system through a fan system, separating the remaining stalks from the ears. The stalks blow out the fan duct into the field while the ears drop onto another conveyor belt. The ears ride the belt and drop into a large moving bucket.
This method is done with both fresh corn and seed corn.
The first mechanical corn harvester was developed in 1930 by Gleaner Harvester Combine Corporation of Independence, Missouri. The unit pulled by a tractor with the unit on the left side.
Corn harvester, a machine designed for harvesting corn and preparing it for storage. The earliest corn-harvesting devices, such as the horse-drawn sledge cutter, severed the stalk at the ground. Binding of the stalks into shocks for drying, as well as the subsequent picking, husking, and shelling, were all done by hand. The mechanical binder was invented about 1850. At about the same time, a rudimentary mechanical picker was developed, though it took nearly 30 years for a practical version to appear.
Corn is ready for harvest about 20 days after the silk first appears. At harvest time, the silk turns brown, but the husks are still green. Each stalk should have at least one ear near the top. When conditions are right, you may get another ear lower down on the stalk.
