How much corn can a combine harvest in a day?
The average speed of the combine is 4 miles per hour. We are able to pick between 50 and 75 acres of corn in one day, or 100 acres of soybeans in one day. We usually combine 10 to 14 hours on a warm, dry day, but we’ve been known to go longer (4 a.m.!) to avoid adverse weather conditions.
How fast can you combine corn?
2.0 – 2.5 mph with a 6 row on a 7720 in 200-250 bushel corn, better in areas, 250+ your below 2 mph. I base a lot on how fast to go on grain flow off yield monitor. My combine will top out at 1100-1200 in 20% corn so i try and keep it 1000-1100 bushel per hour.
How much does combine harvest per hour?
John Deere’ new X9 1100 Combine holds the capacity to harvest up to 30 acres of tough and high-yielding wheat per hour. It also harvests up to 7,200 bushels per hour in high-yielding corn.
How fast can a combine harvest?

How much can you combine in a day?
Dumping on the go? A combine with a 30′ or 35′ flex head will be able to do anywhere from 150-200 acres per day if you are dumping on the go, moving at a good clip(4+ mph) and don’t have a lot of road time. This is talking 10-12 hour days.

Corn combines fine in rain. Especially if the corn is dryer. If you have a quick shower while combining when the stalks toughen up, more trash is pulled down through the stripper plates (lexion people call them deck plates) and less trash goes into the combine thus increasing the harvesting efficiency of the machine.

How efficient is a combine?
Field efficiencies for a self-propelled combine range from 65-80%, with typical combines achieving 70% (ASAE, 2011). Efficiency varies due to a variety of factors including turning time, speed, machine width, row length, and crop yield (Hunt, 2001).
