The Grain Quality Initiative has been supporting projects related to post-harvest bioeconomy and
bioprocessing of grains. In FY2010, the project areas have been condensed to two priority areas:
quality control/quality management and bioprocessing impacts. The goal of this meeting is to
discuss impacts of current issues in both areas, and identify needs/actions for ISU Extension.
