A harvesting apparatus for a crop has a separator for separating grain from the stalks. The separator has a platform adjustable to different heights positioned on the front end of the separator. The separator also has a rearward end for discharging stalks separated from the grain. A cutter is attached to the front end of the platform and is capable of cutting the crop close to the ground and feeding both the crop and the stalks into the platform. A chopper is interposed between the cutter and the platform so that the stalks of the crop are comminuted prior to entering the platform and prior to the grain being separated from the stalks.
