We are inviting farmers and grain elevators from priority locations to collaborate with us on measuring bins for selected grain crops. Please contact Josephine Boac or Mark Casada if you would like to collaborate on obtaining this on-site data. See "On-Site Measurements" for an overview of the on-site data collection process, or contact Josephine Boac for more information.
