The combine harvester is agricultural machinery designed to finely gather and harvest several varieties of grains crops, such as wheat, barley, corn, and so on. The name, derived from its blending of four different harvesting operations into a single procedure, identifies the harvester’s four main stages of operation. The harvester has been in use for more than two thousand years, dating back to the sixteenth century, making it one of the oldest agricultural machinery in the world. It was invented by Louis Agassiz, Spain’s first sugar producer.
The harvester mainly mixes, re-throws, and gathers the stalks of the selected crop. Harvesting is usually done with the help of this automated machinery. In the early days of the harvester, it was commonly used to harvest cereals and other grains, but it later became more widely used for other crops that may include, beans, potatoes, pumpkins, and lettuce. Today, the harvester is commonly used to harvest fruits, vegetables, melons, cucumbers, and onions. This machinery also may be used to manufacture paper, foam, yarn, and other textile products.
Harvesting using the combine harvester is accomplished through four stages: pre-harvest, harvesting, processing, and storage. The processing stage involves the collection of the crop from the stalk. Harvesting is carried out similarly, except that the harvested plants are cut down and the stems and stalks are left on the ground. Storage for several days is often necessary before the plants can be stored for further storage, such as for several months. Harvesting, on the other hand, mostly consumes energy. Some of the newer harvesters have been designed to use less energy than the traditional ones, allowing for a cost-effective way of harvesting crops using harvester.
