Counting grains, measuring reporting and sharing their properties globally

Hello Ask USDA, I am impressed that my question was processed over the Christmas weekend.  I have been reading more about grains, grain quality, grain grading, grain cleaning, grain sorting and related things.  I still have not found reports that tell the number, sizes, weights and qualities of grains.

Machine vision and Industries – ZWO group on Facebook about microscopes and noise imaging
