Use of the combined harvester-thresher for the harvesting of cereals has increased rapidly in the Great Plains area in the past few years. The introduction and ever greater employment of this new method of harvesting small grains has brought with it some problems that must be faced by both the user of the combine and by the parties taking over the grain in its course to the terminal markets. In view of the problems arising from the introduction and use of the combine in South Dakota it was deemed worthwhile to determine the extent to which this new method of harvesting is adapted to the conditions in this state.
