New Way To “Chop” Cornstalks
Corn farmers in Germany fight a constant battle against the European corn borer. That battle prompted Knoche Maschinebau to come up with a new machine to cut up stalks after harvest in such a way as to destroy the corn borer’s habitat.
  Their new machine cuts off stalks at ground level, virtually eliminating stubble and allowing air to pass into the interior of the cornstalk. That causes the stalks to rot, destroying corn borers in the process.
  The low-to-the-ground rugged cutterbar can be mounted ahead of a tractor or mounted on front of a disc harrow at the rear of the tractor.
