The Kemper Gold Innovation 2017. Corn borer elimination already at harvesting. The corn borer has become a significant problem in all important corn cultivation regions. And the issue is on the rise. Mulching the corn stubble is a common version of corn borer control; however, stubble pressed down by the forage harvester chain cannot be reached. Kemper has developed “The Stalkbuster!” This ground breaking solution allows for controlling the corn borer without plant protection agents. The Stalkbuster is integrated into the base frame of the rotary crop header. The intelligent development of a special flail breaks up every row of stubble individually before the wheels of the self-propelled forage harvester can flatten the stubble.
