Windrow burn chute for CASE harvester

Windrow burn chute for CASE harvester

Narrow windrow burning (NWB) was one of the first and most widely adopted harvest weed seed control tools in Australia. While it might be considered ‘older technology’, it still has a fit for strategic use in wetter seasons, especially on smaller area farms.

This resource provides CAD designs for a narrow windrow burning chute suited to a CASE header. These designs have been made available by NWB pioneer and farmer Andrew Messina.
