Impacts of Policy Changes on Discounts for Insects in Farm-Stored Wheat

By Bryan W. Schurle, Steven S. Duncan, Carl Reed, Fred Worman and John Pedersen


New grading standards became effective in 1988 to encourage improved grain quality. This paper reports the results of two surveys designed to identify changes in discounting policies and a comparison of discount data collected in 1986 to data collected in 1991. Evidence indicates increases in discounts and improved management practices.Crop Production/Industries,
