The plots are established in the fall using the grower's drill, and then harvested the following summer with the grower combine.
A weigh wagon is used to measure the bushels produced in each plot, and yields are calculated on the tailgate of the pickup in the grower's fields.
Today's harvest was near Athena, Oregon in a direct seeded field. The yields are as follows:
