Making Biogas from Agricultural Crops

Posted on: May 31st 2019   •   Posted in: Agriculture, Case Studies

The business of good biogas craft starts with the ability to feed the plant with the correct nutrient. Often known as “the Cows Stomach”, a mixture of silage and concentrates in the correct proportions is very important in order to maximize the production of methane.

At harvest it’s all hands on deck. The forage harvester cuts the crop and trailers run to and from the field, delivering the forge to the clamp. It is a precision operation with change-over from one trailer to the next on the move. There’s no time to lose. When the crop is in its optimum condition, the harvest gets into full swing as quickly and efficiently as possible.

One of the key features of the operation is the Griffith Elder weighbridge. This serves two purposes at harvest. Firstly, farmers and growers need to know the yield from each field so that they can better manage their cropping patterns in future years and secondly, it is important to know how much crop has gone into each clamp. With a Griffith Elder weighbridge this is piece of mind and the harvest can run smoothly.
