Future F2F Volunteer Assistance
Rodents seemed to be one of the biggest concerns of the farmers.† Further discussion of locally available rodent control methods, including where to source items and cost would be helpful. (This may be best served by Extension through the Department of Agriculture.)
If local option for rental of mechanical threshing machines exist, live demonstration of mechanical harvesting methods, including where to source items and cost would help.† It could prove the efficiency of the harvesting and show farmers a higher yield of grain.
Consider possible outreach to grain traders with the hermetic technology to help with community adoption, demand, and supply chain.
SDCOR could use aid in grant writing for mechanical harvesting and/or more PICS bags to make their grants more competitive.
