The production system for cereal crops sown in the spring begins with the tillage of the soil after the previous crop is harvested in the autumn and ends with the crop being delivered to a domestic or foreign processor. The size and type of equipment and facilities used at each stage of the system affect the cost, quantity and quality of the delivered product. Seeding time determines crop growth during the summer and the date of maturity. Grain swathed and combined during long dry days of early fall is normally of better quality than grain harvested later in the fall. Also the earlier combining is completed, the better the seed bed that can be prepared for next year
