Ely Grain reports that all this humidity has completely shut down the harvest- lng. Up until the rains started, the wheat had been at the proper dryness and good yields were reported. Ap- proximately a third of the fields have been harvested so far. Lester from CPI reports that they have seen a bit of ergot in some of the grain they've taken in. Ergot is, of course, a very poisonous fungus. Acceptable limits for ergot contamination if .05 percent, before the load has to be discounted. Any suspect load of wheat. CPI sends to Hastings for festing. Since ergot makes the individual wheat grain swell to as much as half an inch long, the affected kernels can be sieved out, so brdinary screening processes will elimi- nate much of the problem.
