Harvesting forage plots for yield determination usually involves separate cutting and collection operations. A standard commercial hammer knife (flail) mower was modified by an addition of an Al collecting box for recovery of cut forage from individual plots. A tophinged rear door facilitated easy removal of harvests onto small tared tarpaulins for subsequent weighing. The modified unit proved to be effective for excellent recovery of cut alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) forage.
