In frustration, they recognized they needed a new and m0t reliable sor- ghum harvesting system. "Yon can do a lot of ~inking while driving combines in long rows." Alan said. He thought abo~t ways to rede- sign the standard corn harvesling at- tachment to make it adaptable for har- vesting sorghum. He and the others designed a prmotype am.t put it to the test in20[5.
