Because we did not have a chance to address grain grading during the Dryland Wheat lectures, this assignment will walk you through some important elements to know about the USDA Grain Grading system.
Please download this Assignment #3 Instructions and Rubric document (pdf version), complete all of the questions (including all of the fill-in-the-blank, short answer, and grain grading questions), and submit using this assignment link.
There are several websites linked within Assignment #3 that you will need to access in order to complete the questions. Here is the Wheat Sample Lot Pictures document (pdf version) that you will need in order to complete the Assigning a Grain Grade portion of the assignment. Also, pay close attention to the ‘Lot’ numbers associated with the four wheat images when answering the Assigning a Grain Grade questions.
Let me know if you have any questions or experience any issues accessing websites. Have fun!
