Some years ago, at the end of corn harvest, a neighbor asked if I would combine his few acres of buckwheat, and sorghum! I had never done either. And didn't want to get my grain head back out from storage. But I did. I didn't do a very good job. The first bin full of buckwheat was dirty, but I got the second one cleaned up. I don't recall the sorghum in the bin, but recall that it threshed hard, unlike the buckwheat, which appeared to be shelled off about when it got into the head! The miserable old neighbor made sure I knew his old combine could do a better job! Looks like you're doing a beautiful job. Those row crop heads used to be very popular here for red kidney beans. Now it's all soybeans.

If you really want to see what your combine is made of then drive off in some of this thinking you are just going to mow it down like wheat and you will get a rude awakening!This time of year for us the grain has barely dried down but the stalk is still very much alive and growing new chutes for another head,At this stage it is some of the wettest,greenest,stickiest stuff you will ever run through a combine.I've had the cyl stopped up in sorghum than any other crop I cut.You honestly wouldnt believe the amount of green that we are sending through the machine when it is in this stage,Wierd thing is that after a frost it combines like a totally different crop.

That does sound familiar. I just clipped the tops to get the heads in. (It looked like corn but with a dark head where the tassel would be). And they were VERY tough. I don't know if it would ever really grow and mature correctly here.
