Biomass crops harvesting

A prototype sweet-sorghum harvester has been devised which carries out the removal of leaves and spathe, therefore harvesting the product ready for long-term storage. It also removes the panicles by means of a series of whips. Two circular parallel blades cut the stalks avoiding all clogging possibilities. The machine sets the product in rows and is light and easy to handle, while maintaining a low cost.
