Abstract

In the paper losses during the harvesting of soyabean has been determinated. Two varieties and two types of combine has been observed. The achived results indicate differences in harvesting losses between two observed varieties. Research also has showed that harvesting with modern combine provides about 23% less losses comparing with the older one. Generally, the losses of 162 kg/ha are about 6% of value of production. In other words, during the harvest of soybean about 51 €/ha is lost. Altogether, total losses on Serbia’s fields were about 7.6 million euros, which is an important level of financial means.
