Wheat - Innovations
While experiments had been made with transporting wheat in bulk as early as the 1900s, elements of bulk handling for grain were not introduced seriously to farming until the 1920s. Wheat silos for bulk handling began to
be built at that time, while the railway system introduced rail carts designed to handle wheat in bulk.
Following the record harvest of 1930, the infrastructure for bulk handling was rapidly put into place, even though some
farmers continued using bags for transport well into the 1940s.
