Abstract

This project is intended to help small-scale grain growers meet an increased demand for diverse, locally grown grains by designing a reaper-binder machine. To refine our prototype and final design, we worked closely with a three person review panel, made up of grain farmers and industrial designers. With this prototype, we hope to provide farmers nationwide with a way to harvest and bind grains on small plots of land in cities and along the periphery of urban areas.
