The article presents two options of organizing the technological process of milled peat extraction with due consideration of weather conditions for peat drying. The first option of the technological process is the extraction based on cycle peat harvesting differentiation. The developed technological process of milled peat drying in thick layers based on pneumatic peat harvesting allows us to organize a technology of peat extraction with a constant cycle time, avoiding the necessity for drying rate prediction. This is due to the fact that under good weather conditions the spreading thickness of 45-50 mm is sufficient to maximize the number of harvesting cycles. Milling at roughly equal depths forms the basis for the second option of technological process. The article presents the methodology of calculating such technological parameters as cycle and seasonal harvesting, number of cycles and seasonal productivity of a harvesting machine. Seasonal harvesting and seasonal productivity of a harvesting machine are calculated by technological design standards. The analysis of calculations revealed that in the process of milled peat extraction based on cycle harvesting differentiation, it is necessary to apply coefficient 0.9 that takes into account the organization of harvesting machines operation.
