Chinese Grass Lodging (Falling / Breaking)

This happens if snow falls too early, i.e. when leaves have not been fallen yet. In plants that are still young, the stalks can rise again after thaw, but in older plants, the stalks break at about 40−50 cm above the ground. In strongly lodging stalks, leaves cannot fall anymore.

During chopping, a significant amount of dust develops, and therefore, the quality of chopping (higher silicon content!) is worse (maturity ratio). Lodging also decreases the driving speed of your chopper, which may result in slightly higher harvesting costs.
