Hill proposes standardized bushel for grain buyers

Hill proposes standardized bushel for grain buyers

Feedstuffs 54(50): p. 18

Elevators could remove the economic incentives for adding water to grain by buying grain on the basis of a standardized bushel, defined in this article as "that quantity of grain required to obtain the same amount of dry matter as contained in a legal bushel at its base moisture". Other advantages of the standardized-bushel system would include the removal of most of the impetus for state regulations relating to moisture content of grain.
