Loss of fiber crop due to over-retting

After all the issues that we had to overcome, we overlooked the fact that the cut tops would allow rain to enter the stalk more readily than if theplant was still entact. This oversight resulted in the loss of most of the acre that we had anticipated would see us through testing of the RD2.0 system.

Fotunately, some stalks were taken of the field & stored, allowing us just enough stalks to complete documentation of the RD2.0. Its the feed system & loading it with green stalks that will form the basis of a video is in jeopardy.
