Harvesting Vernonia Anthelmintica (L.) Willd. to Reduce Seed Shattering Losses1

  1. John H. Massey2

Abstract

Abstract

Results from four methods of harvesting Vernonia anthelmintica (L.) Willd. seed indicated that the highest yield (1,369 kg/ha) was obtained by cutting and windowing plants before seedheads opened. When harvest was delayed until all seed had ripened, yields were reduced to 264 kg/ha by shattering. Other methods gave intermediate yields.
